Author, Photographer: Jane Brocket
Jane Brocket is the author of The Gentle Art of Domesticity (2007) and The Gentle Art of Quiltmaking (2010) and of two books based on the wonderful things characters eat and do in classic children’s books: Cherry Cake and Ginger Beer (2008) and Ripping Things to Do (2009)—a selection of the pieces in these two books has been collected into one volume for the US as Turkish Delight and Treasure Hunts (Perigee, 2010). She is currently writing a series of four Clever Concepts books for Millbrook Press. She has a knitting book to be published in 2011 and two more craft books in the pipeline. Jane enjoys knitting, quilting, sewing, baking, growing flowers, and taking photographs of the things she makes as well as details of the world around her. She loves color, pattern, texture, shapes, and objects. And, above all, she love books and reading.
“This is just one entry in the Jane Brocket’s Clever Concepts series, all of which share the same snazzy appeal.” —Booklist
“This selection would be a wonderful tool for heightening a child’s awareness of all the sensory experiences afforded by an outing to the park or any other venue or for a fun sensory-based scavenger hunt at home on a dreary day. In any case, it’s a book that will be pored over again and again, thanks to photography that absolutely pops.” —School Library Journal
“Teachers and parents eager for their children to experience the world in a different way will be thrilled.” —Kirkus Reviews
