More About Audrey Wood

In The Authors Own Words...

My first memories are of Sarasota, Florida in the winter quarters of the Ringling Brothers' Circus. I was one year old and remember it vividly. My father, an art student, was making extra income by repainting circus murals.

The people in the circus were my friends. I was bounced on the knee of the tallest man in the world and rocked in the arms of the fat lady who could not stand up. My first baby-sitters were a family of little people who lived in a trailer next to ours. They tAudrey2old me stories about the animals they worked with: Chi Chi the Chimpanzee, an elephant named Elder, and Gargantua the Gorilla.

My mother says I was a fast learner, always ahead of my age. My father taught me to swim before I could walk. I walked at seven months and climbed over a seven foot chain link fence when I was one year old. Everyone in the circus thought I was going to be a trapeze artist.

When I was two, I traveled with my parents to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, where they studied art. Spanish became my second language. Because my mother read to me every day, I fell in love with books and was reading by age three.

My parents had two more girls, which made me the oldest sister. All of us were trained in the arts: music, dance, painting, and drama. We had a miniature stage in our basement, complete with light-bulb floodlights and a dusty red velvet curtain. Admission for the plays we produced was a bargain--twenty-five cents.

When I was in the first grade, I wanted to grow up to be an artist like my father. Then, in the fourth grade, I decided I'd like to be a children's book author. As an adult who writes and illustrates children's books, I have realized both my childhood ambitions.

I got in trouble in school once for crossing out my favorite author's name and putting in mine--Audrey Brewer instead of Dr. Seuss! My great-grandfather, grandfather, and father were all professional artists. Since I am also a professional artist, there are four consecutive generations of artists in our family. However, I am the only female artist. Don On our honeymoon, I read my new husband Don Wood the classic children's book entitled At the Back of the North Wind. Seven years later, we teamed up to create our first picture book together.

When our son Bruce Robert was two years old, I began to read picture books to him. He helped to remind me of my childhood ambitions. That's when I began to write children's books seriously.

Outstanding illustrations make this nice story come alive  Mar 14, 2008
Don Wood is an amazing artist! The illustrations are just incredible. The story is sweet. My three year old daughter and I enjoy reading it.
A favorite at my house  Mar 23, 2006
I love the Wood's books, but this one takes the cake for me and my family. The illustrations are beautiful and are the perfect compliment for the wonderful prose. It is childlike, but very profound and sweet, completely heartwarming.
A delightful picture book  Nov 29, 2005
This picture book is about a bullfrog named Jubal. He was a very happy frog and wanted to share his happiness with his other friends. He tries to share his picnic lunch with Gerdy Toad and her toadlets, but she doesn't accept and has to much work to do. Then Jubal goes on to Captain Dalbert Lizard and finds that he is not very happy either. Jabal goes away to eat his lunch questioning if he should be unhappy, since the others are. A wizard appears and Jabal wishes for all his friends to be happy, not sure if the wish will work. Jabal then makes his way back to see that his wish has not yet been granted, and finds a toadstool and sits and begins to cry. It begins to rain and Jabal becomes stranded, and shortly after his friends come to his rescue and everyone is happy. I think this is a great book that would pass some down time in a classroom. This book teaches children the lesson that not everyone around you will be happy all the time and you cant change that! I think this book will help children with there reading skills, and helps them use the imagination with the animals coming to life. The illustrator does a fabulous job when showing how the animals are capable of doing everything us as humans can; it brings them This is a great picture book that can be used during some down time in class. This book is a short read, and will help children with reading, as well as there imagination. It brings animals to life, and paints a clear picture to the students about how everyone is not always going to be happy. You could get your class involved with maybe making a snack to share with another class each week, thus will also help your children make new friends and the chance to apply the story to real life. You may be able to even have your class share the times they just didn't seem happy, and or if they had a friend they just could not cheer up, and share with the rest of us what eventually happened. You may also have your students to compose there own story concerning a time in which there friends didn't seem to have the time to spend with them, then publish their work online! It would be great for them to always have to look back on!to life and will allow a child's imagination run wild.
