More About Cynthia Rylant, Isidre Mones & Sucie Stevenson
As a child, Diane Goode loved books and art. She has been drawing ever since she can remember.Of Italian and French descent, she enjoyed the richness of both cultures and traveled to Europeevery summer visiting family as well as cathedrals and museums. She feels that these earlyimpressions helped shape her appreciation of art and life. She studied art history at QueensCollege, but switched to fine arts, in which she earned her degree. Her love for Europe shows in the setting of many of her books Paris in particular, where two ofher recent picture books, Where's Our Mama? and Mama's PerfectPresent. take place. She drewon her experience of living for a short time in Pennsylvania, to do the art work for CynthiaRylant's story of Appalachia, When I Was Young in the Mountains, for which shewas awarded aCaldecott Honor Medal. Diane Goode has illustrated 27 books for children, including anthologiesand stories she has written herself. She has always been drawn to the classics and has illustratedmany of the traditional fairy tales. Of her process, she says: -I always begin with a rough dummy and then work on the individual pages, sketching veryloosely and quickly to establish movement and composition. I do these dozens of times, repositioning enlarging, reducing, adding and omitting. There are always hundreds of sketches foreach book. It sounds tedious, but it is the most exciting part of creating a book. When I msatisfied with these, I do the final art. All of my work is done on opaline parchment, a thin butstrong paper. I sketch lightly in pencil and use water colors applied with very fine sable brushes.Sometimes I use color pencils with the paint to soften the atmosphere.- Diane Goode now lives in Watchung, New Jersey, with her husband David, an author and collegeprofessor. Their son, Peter, attends Rhode Island School of Design.
Cynthia Rylant currently resides in Portland, in the state of Oregon. Cynthia Rylant was born in 1967.

Reviews - What do customers think about Puppy Mudge Has a Snack?
Recommended for beginning readers who love dogs Apr 13, 2010
I've used different sets of books in helping my now 5-year-old daughter learn to read. This series "Puppy Mudge" was one of the early books that we used back when she was four and which we still use for practice. The books in this Ready-To-Read series are categorized into 4 levels: Pre-Level 1 - Recognizing Words Level 1 - Starting to Read Level 2 - Reading Independently Level 3 - Reading Proficiently
At 5, my daughter is currently at Level 1. In these pre-level 1 books, children who are starting to show an interest in reading will find the story of Puppy Mudge (and a rather large puppy he is too!) interesting and engaging, though perhaps not as adorable as Biscuit (created by Alyssa Satin Capucilli). Mudge gets into all sorts of scrapes and the stories rely on certain key words being repeated throughout the story. Here the words are "snack" and "cute". These books are suited for children ages 4-6. I would also recommend the Biscuit books, i.e. Biscuit's New Trick (My First I Can Read),Biscuit Wants to Play (My First I Can Read), Bathtime for Biscuit (My First I Can Read).

We bought it for our granddaughter who hadn't learned to read. It really helped her.
