Kort biografi

His titles with Jon Scieszka have included the Caldecott Honor winner TheStinky Cheese Man. Lane's other high profile titles includeHorray for Diffendoffer Day! by Dr. Seuss and Jack Prelutsky and James and the Giant Peachby Roald Dahl. In 1996 Lane served as Conceptual Designer on the Disney film version of James and the Giant Peach.



I haven't read a book by Lane Smith that I didn't like. His illustrations are unique and lead the way to a good story. Stickler lives in the woods and is covered by wood. His eyes are always different. And, as the title notes, Stickler does indeed love the world.
All creatures in the wood are strange but, Stickler is by far the most different. And Stickler loves sticks the most, except clouds, bats, stones moss, bees, bark, birds, plants, a happy rabbit, a weepy tree, and a slimy frog.

With his ever changing eyes, he can discover so very many different things to love, especially a world with so very many weird things. When he discovers a black object with legs and a can on it's head, Stickler wants to show the strange things he discovers such as a morning sun, flowers that smell good , waves, and smelly fish.

When Sticlkler removes the can off the object with legs, he discovers his friend crow. And then, Stickler opens the eys of the crow the see everything differently.

The illustrations in this book are incredible. Thus far, this is my favorite Lane Smith book!!! It is a must for anyone who appreciats great art of illustrations!

Ich lese und höre inzwischen überall: am PC, Laptop, Tablet, iPhone etc.

Am liebsten aber ist mir immer noch ein echtes Buch, zum Vor- und Zurückblättern, ankreuzen, unterstreichen, herausschreiben, zusammenfassen.

Die Welt in der spannenden Betrachtung zwischen Multimedia und dem einfachen, gedruckten Buch ist Thema dieses wunderschönen Bilderbuches.

Bemerkungen zum Schmunzeln, hervorragende Illustrationen, komische Situationen lassen die Vorteile des Buches gekonnt auf den Punkt kommen.

Ein schönes Geschenk, für Kinder und Erwachsene.

This is another book by Lane Smith that elicits smiles and laughter. He has a simplistic way of encouraging us to read more and more of his books! He never fails to amaze, amuse and bring a smile!

In this story,
It was a perfect day for cat in the flowers where sleep was comfortable.
It was a perfect day for dog when the water rom the hose was refreshingly cool and just what was needed when it was a very hot day.
It was a perfect day for Chickadee who was fortunate to enjoy a fully filled bird feeder.
It was a perfect day for squirrel who couldn't get up the bird feeder because the design prohibited success. But, the kind boy who filled the feeder, dropped a perfect cob of corn on the grass, and squirrel immediately felt lucky.


Along comes spoiler bear. He manages to disrupt each and every animal from their joy. And, as the kind boy looks out the window with cat, dog, while bird and squirrel hang around out of the window, they are dismayed that their perfect day was spoiled by a bear who had his own perfect day.

I've read many books by this author. He never fails to disappoint.

Four Stars
