About the Author
Susan Solie Patterson has dreamed of writing and art directing a children's book since she received her Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The bestselling Big Words for Little Geniuses was her first book with her husband, James Patterson.
James Patterson holds the Guinness World Record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers, and his books have sold more than 375 million copies worldwide. In 2015, Patterson created a new children's book imprint, JIMMY Patterson, whose mission is simple: "We want every kid who finishes a JIMMY Book to say, 'PLEASE GIVE ME ANOTHER BOOK.'"
Praise for Cuddly Critters for Little Geniuses:
"Continuing the vocabulary-building they began in Big Words for Little Geniuses (2017), the Pattersons focus here on creatures with names that beg to be sounded out and relished--from the "silly-looking aye-aye" to the "adorable" dumbo octopus, axolotl, and jerboa. Pan supplies stylized portraits in illustrations that are all bright colors and blobby shapes, as cheery as Matisse paper collages. ...This parade will give the next generation of Jane Goodalls and Roger Tory Petersons a leg up on some of the wild kingdom's more colorful (and sonorously named) residents."—Kirkus Reviews
