KEITH BAKER has written and illustrated many picture books, including Little Green, Big Fat Hen, and Who Is the Beast? He lives in Seattle, Washington.
PreSchool-Grade 2--The affable alligators who made their debut in Meet Mr. and Mrs. Green (Harcourt, 2002) are back with three brand-new adventures. On a fishing trip, Mrs. Green is discouraged because she isn't catching anything, until she learns that her husband has a secret bait--jellybeans. Next, Mr. Green is proud to be the model for his wife's Picasso-like portrait. Finally, a park proves to be the perfect place for both of them; after an enjoyable day, they decide that spaghetti with mashed potatoes makes a perfect follow-up to an ice-cream snack. Baker's palette features many bright colors, but the vibrant, green alligators take center stage on every page. Simple number concepts and translations of French words are seamlessly woven into the story. This easy-reader with a more sophisticated, chapter-book appearance will appeal to children familiar with Barbara Baker's "Digby and Kate" books (Dutton) and Denys Cazet's "Minnie and Moo" series (HarperCollins). With their zest for life and kind regard for one another, the endearing Mr. and Mrs. Green are sure to acquire more and more fans among newly independent readers.--Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT
