Lyhyt elämäkerta
Peter Brown writes and illustrates books for young whippersnappers. He grew up in Hopewell, New Jersey, where he spent his time imagining and drawing silly characters. He studied Life Lessons at the School of Hard Knocks, and then got his B.F.A. in Illustration from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

After college Peter moved to Brooklyn, New York and spent several years painting backgrounds for animated TV shows. And then in 2003 he got a book deal to write and illustrate his first picture book FLIGHT OF THE DODO, which is a story that involves bird poop...in case you're into that kind of thing. Since then he's written and illustrated three more picture books, and illustrated several other books for young whippersnappers. His books have been adapted into plays and animated short films, they have been translated into a dozen languages, and they include the 2010 E.B. White award winner, Children's Choice Award winner, and New York Times bestselling books THE CURIOUS GARDEN.

His books CHILDREN MAKE TERRIBLE PETS, YOU WILL BE MY FRIEND! and his latest book, CREEPY CARROTS! are also New York Times bestsellers and award winners. CREEPY CARROTS! written by Aaron Reynolds has also been named a 2013 Caldecott Honor book.

Great read aloud for students that follows a robot as she adapts to her surroundings in order to survive and come to find out the reason behind her history. Go on an adventure with Roz as she explores the island, survives fights with bears and befriends the inhabitants of the island.

Excellent read aloud book for 3rd grade class. The audiobook version read by Kate Atwater was very good. I will report back what the students opinion is when we finish the book.
The kids absolutely loved the story. They are begging for the next book in the series.

We love Peter Brown books (both picture and middle grade), and a funny story about a bear that enthusiastically but awkwardly attempts to make friends is appropriate for the start of the school year.
