Reviews

Booklist

“The animated romp’s peppy verse and colorful art capture the comical bedlam with flair. . . An entertaining addition to beginning time-telling lessons.” —Booklist

Kirkus Reviews

“Hartman’s characters are full of personality – the cat is high-and-mighty while the dog is just plain loopy. Her colors reflect the passing of the day, getting increasingly darker as the sun disappears and the characters become sleepier. With its emphasis on the hours, this has great potential for the youngest audiences.” —Kirkus Reviews

Publishers Weekly

“Part of the Math Is Fun! series, this intro to telling time has a familiar beginning (‘Hickory dickory dock,/ a mouse ran up the clock’), but things soon take a dramatic turn.” —Publishers Weekly

Illustrator: Carrie Hartman

Carrie Hartman grew up knowing she would illustrate picture books some day. Her school and local library were her favorite places to be when she was young. She graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design with her degree in Illustration. Carrie’s illustration work can be seen nationally and internationally in: picture books, editorial publications, animated projects, advertising, greeting cards, and much more. Carrie finds that working on picture books is very special. Having children tell her that one of her picture books is the book they have their parents read it to them every night before bed is the biggest honor that she could hope for. Carrie teaches in the illustration department at MCAD. She freelances from her studio and is currently writing her own picture books.
