Quotes & Awards

  • “Hutchins sneaks a bit of math into this funny tale.”

    BarnesandNoble.com, editorial review

  • “The characters have an unusually authentic feeling and convey a strong sense of family. The book is, of course, a mini-lesson in short division. But don’t tell any kids—the arithmetic is so subtly incorporated into the story that they need never know it’s there.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This is a nice treatment for a popular book about sharing that deserves a place in every math/literacy collection.”

    School Library Journal

About the Author

Pat Hutchins, one of seven children, was born in Yorkshire, England, and grew up in the surrounding countryside, which she still loves. At a very early age she knew that she wanted to be an artist and was encouraged by an elderly couple who would give her a chocolate bar for each picture she drew. A local art school offered her a scholarship and she studied there for three years, continuing her training at Leeds College of Art, where she specialized in illustration. Her career in the children’s book field began with the highly acclaimed Rosie’s Walk, a 1968 ALA Notable Book. Since then she has written five novels and created more than twenty-five picture books. She was awarded England’s prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 1974 for The Wind Blew. She lives with her husband in London, England.
