    PreS. Knitting is such a popular pastime these days, it's no surprise that after Mother Rabbit hears there's a blizzard on the way, she knits a woolly blue cap to cover Little Rabbit's ears. Little Rabbit then suggests making Christmas presents of hats for their friends, and he distracts the horse, the goose, and the others while Mother measures for the chapeaus. Working feverishly (and with Little Rabbit's help), Mother finishes the hats, which are silly and cumbersome as well as very cute, just in time. The recipients' initial response is underwhelming, but after the snow starts flying, the animals quickly become appreciative. Young ones may not understand why there's no thank you from the animals at first, but even missing this point won't diminish their enjoyment much. The acrylic artwork glows with humor and radiates warmth. The design features a varied layout that finds full-page pictures loaded with details juxtaposed with spreads and pages decorated with cameo art. The author and artist, sisters who have collaborated on several illustrated novels, make a promising picture-book debut here. ((Reviewed December 1, 2004)) Copyright 2004 Booklist Reviews.

Author Notes

Kate Klise lives and writes on her forty-acre farm in a valley north of Norwood, Missouri (population: 300 something), where, not long ago, a man at the post office asked her: "Do you make those stories up out of your own head?" Indeed she does!

M. Sarah Klise draws and paints in her studio in Berkeley, California, where she lives with two cats. In addition to her work as an illustrator, Ms. Klise teaches drawing to children and adults in San Francisco's Chinatown. Kate and Sarah are sisters who have previously collaborated on illustrated novels for children. This is their first picture book.
