Sample text

After this initial success, editors asked Arnold and Hewett to collaborate on more animal books.  Arnold often chooses to write about endangered wildlife because she feels it is important for children to realize the plight of these animals. Because of the time and expense involved in each project, Arnold and Hewett often visit zoos and wild animal parks to gather information and to take photographs. These animals are more accustomed to interaction with people, and Arnold and Hewett are able to get closer to the animals, especially the baby animals that often become the focus of Arnold's work.

He also encounters other popular characters such as King Kong, Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, and Superman. A third type of book, characteristic of Anno's work, features the retelling of classic folk stories such as Kitsune ga hirotta grimm dowa (The Grimm Tales That the Fox Gathered).  In 1984, he received the international Hans Christian Andersen Award for illustration.  Anno believes that Anno's Counting House (Ju­nin no Yukai­na Hikkoshi) has received the most favorable response from his readers.

When he died, he left an unfinished book manuscript written on squares of brown wrapping paper.  For twenty­four years, she taught first­ and second­grade children.  Aardema continued to teach and write until 1973, when she retired from teaching to become a full­time writer.  Aardema's neighbor's dog, who drooled at her screen door while she was frying meat, inspired the Sloogeh Dog, featured in an African story, who drooled at a rich man's gate.  For fun and to keep in shape, she and her husband also swam 10 laps a day in their clubhouse pool.
