About the Author

Pat Hutchins, one of seven children, was born in Yorkshire, England, and grew up in the surrounding countryside, which she still loves. At a very early age she knew that she wanted to be an artist and was encouraged by an elderly couple who would give her a chocolate bar for each picture she drew. A local art school offered her a scholarship and she studied there for three years, continuing her training at Leeds College of Art, where she specialized in illustration. Her career in the children's book field began with the highly acclaimed Rosie's Walk, a 1968 ALA Notable Book. Since then she has written five novels and created more than twenty-five picture books. She was awarded England's prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 1974 for The Wind Blew. Pat Hutchins lives with her husband in London, England.

Reviews

PreS-Gr 3‘Beginning with sprightly music, this Spanish-language translation of Pat Hutchins' book (Greenwillow, 1986) is fairly faithful to the original. It is the story of a multiethnic group of children dividing a dozen cookies in different ways as more and more children arrive at the door. There are obvious math curriculum applications, but the story is also good literature. One side of the tape contains page-turn signals, the other does not. All instructions are given in Spanish. The female narrator has a clear, crisp voice, although it is somewhat lacking in expression. The only sound effect is the doorbell ringing. Audio quality is good. This would make an acceptable Spanish-language listening center program.‘Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary School, Federal Way, WA

"As refreshing, enjoyable and unpredictable as an unexpected visit from a friend."-- "School Library Journal" (starred review)
