Denise Fleming has written and illustrated many children's books, including In the Tall, Tall Grass, Shout! Shout It Out!, and Sleepy, Oh So Sleepy. She won a Caldecott Honor for In the Small, Small Pond. Denise published her first painting in the third grade, when she started taking classes at the Toledo Museum of Art and one of her paintings was chosen to be the cover of a teacher's magazine. She now works primarily with paper, by pouring colored paper pulp through hand-cut stencils. She lives in Toledo, Ohio.From Kirkus Reviews:
The substance here is traditional--numbers from one to ten introduced with animals to count; the idea extended with tens to 50--but the presentation is outstanding. Like the art in Fleming's eye-catching In the Tall, Tall Grass (1991), these illustrations are rendered in a unique medium using colored pulp from which she creates her own handmade paper. In the collage- like result, there are both areas of subtly modulated color with cloud-like edges and the crisper definitions of cut paper. The brilliant tones and bold juxtapositions will nourish the imaginations of babies too young for the number concepts; the handsome design and exquisite balance of vibrant colors will make the book a favorite until the child is old enough to consider the final appealing spread with the numeral ``50,'' the words ``fifty bees,'' 50 marks grouped in tens, and 50 stylized bees headed up and away. Fashioned with care, intelligence, and artistry--a delight. (Picture book. 0-8) -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
