About the Author

Kevin Henkes was born in Racine, Wis. in 1960 and graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. One of four children in his family, Henkes grew up with aspirations of being an artist. As a junior in high school, one of Henkes's teachers awakened his interest in writing. Falling in love mostrar mais with both writing and drawing, Henkes realized that he could do both at the same time as a children's book author and illustrator. At the age of 19, Henkes went to New York City to get his first book, All Alone, published. Since that time, he has written and illustrated dozens of picture books including Chrysanthemum, Protecting Marie, and A Weekend with Wendell. A recurring character in several of Henkes's books is Lily, an outrageous, yet delightful, individualist. Lily finds herself the center of attention in the books Chester's Way, Julius, the Baby of the World, and Lily's Purple Plastic Purse. A Weekend With Wendell was named Children's Choice Book by the Children's Book Council in 1986. He recieved the Elizabeth Burr Award for Words of Stone in 1993. Owen was named a Caldicott Honor in 1994. The Year of Billy Miller was named a Newbery Honor book in 2014. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Chrysanthemum, Chrysanthemum, Chrysanthemum!

I have a new appreciation for this book as a parent - I feel the same way about my sweet Phoebe as Chrysanthemum's parents do. She is absolutely perfect.

And so is this book.

I've also come to realize that my sweet, absolutely perfect daughter is obsessed with villains, and she told me she needed to look at the page of nightmare Victoria picking Chrysanthemum's petals for ten minutes.

I have a feeling we will be reading this again for bedtime very soon...… (mais)
