More About Stephen Cosgrove

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Stephen Cosgrove is one of the best-selling children's book authors of all time. His writing career began in 1973. At the time, he was working as vice-president of an investment company. Shopping at bookstores for his three-year-old daughter, he was frustrated by the dearth of fun-to-read picture books that also convey positive values. Consequently, he decided to write his own stories. Teaming with Seattle illustrator Robin James, Cosgrove went on to create four titles that became the foundation of his best-selling Serendipity series, which have sold over 80 million copies worldwide. Since then, he has written more than 300 books, some under his own name and others using pseudonyms, ranging from picture books to young adult thrillers. His complete works have sold close to 100 million copies. Mr. Cosgrove has been honored by Idaho State Legislators for career achievement and has won the Coors Lumen Award for family values. He is also the winner of multiple Children's Choice Awards. He lives in Austin, TX.
Robin James is a gifted illustrator and a native of the Pacific Northwest. She has loved art and animals all her life and has been drawing ever since she could hold a pencil. Through the years, she has created a wide variety of artwork from animal portraits to wildlife paintings and has illustrated over 75 children's books, and is published worldwide. She lives in Snohomish, WA.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a life-changing book!  May 31, 2002
Beautifully illustrated and full of wisdom, the book, Maui-Maui, was one of the major influences which caused me to become an environmentalist.
I remember when I read it, it wasn't a totally comfortable experience (but then neither was Orwell's brilliant political allegory "Animal Farm"); the "anenomies", who over-fish the ocean in the story, can be seen as a metaphor for humans, and it was an uncomfortable experience for me to identify with these creatures in the story, when I realised that they were causing such destruction. But who ever said learning and developing wisdom were painless?
Then again, I also have fond memories of the book - which is why I wrote this review. It's a great book! So if you want to foster an environmental consciousness in a child, I say give them this book! I know I will :)
Too heavy handed.  Oct 17, 2000
The Amomonies (small, furry, otter-like beings) love to fish. They happily pull fish, octopi, and so forth out of the ocean from their little boats. Then, one day, they find a whale moves to prevent their fishing. Thinking that the others are lying, Mom Amomony sets out to discover the truth. The whale confronts Mom Amomony, and shows her that her children are over-fishing, and depleting the ocean. The whale then teaches the Amomonies how to live in harmony with the ocean.

To me, where the rubber hits the road is what does my seven-year-old think of the book, and he hated it. This book is too heavy handed in the lesson, and doesn't do enough for the reader. The text was about right for his reading level, but a younger reader could probably read it as well.

My son gives this book one star; I give it an extra one for the lesson. Overall, I recommend you pass this one by.

Maui-Maui  Mar 26, 2000
This book teaches you not to over do it. In this book the Amomonies fish more then they should. Then the whale Maui-Maui comes and takes the Queen for a dive and shows her that there no fish left. So to find out if this book teaches them a lesson feed it.
