        "My Grandma was a pastel artist and, for as long as I can remember, an artist is what I wanted to be too," says children's author and illustrator Leslie Patricelli. "My hobby as a kid was drawing cartoons and writing stories, and I started to consider a career in art in seventh grade. When the multiple choice career test I took resulted in a recommendation that I pursue a career in forestry, I went back and changed all my answers, so that it recommended instead that I pursue graphic design since they didn't have children's book writer or cartoonist on the list."

        Today, Leslie Patricelli's legions of fans are evidence that career tests are not always reliable. Her colorful board books about opposites —Yummy Yucky, Big Little, Quiet Loud, and No No Yes Yes —follow a diapered protagonist as he discovers some curious contradictions, such as "ladies are big" while "ladybugs are little." Her inspiration for the series came from her son Beck who, at one year old, "was constantly putting everything into his mouth." Says the author, "I found myself saying 'Yummy!' and 'Yucky!' all the time. I began to draw a baby dramatically expressing his taste or distaste for the things he was eating. The idea of Yummy Yucky was born!"

        Leslie Patricelli's baby board books also include Potty, Tubby, Tickle, Toot, Binky, and Blankie, which play up scenarios near and dear to every toddler's heart with the artist's humorous, bold graphic style. Here again, the author-illustrator drew on her parenting experiences. "During our years of early child-rearing, my husband and I have spent countless frantic hours looking for Binky. Usually the search is tense, as it typically begins when our toddler wants her binky NOW! I found myself thinking how funny it must look to our kids to see us on our hands and knees, digging around the house. As for Blankie, this book was created as an ode to that beloved item."

        Baby also stars in a series of holiday board books: Boo! (Halloween); Fa La La (Christmas); and Huggy Kissy (Valentine's Day); and Hop! Hop! (Easter).

        Leslie Patricelli is also the author-illustrator of several other picture books, including
        Higher! Higher!, a Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards Honor Book, and the Patterson Puppies series.

        Leslie Patricelli lives in Idaho with her husband, three children, cats Sassy and Elvin, and rabbits Olivia and Chewy.

        December 23, 2013
        Patricelli expands her series of board books starring the emotive, diaper-clad baby most recently seen in Fa La La and Huggy Kissy. "I am not ticklish," declares the baby, hands on hips and a single curly hair sprouting from its head. The arrival of a "tickle monster" (the child's father) suggests otherwise—the following pages are full of giggles, tickles, and "gootchie gootchie goos." It's ideal for mischievous tickle-reading but, importantly, Patricelli devotes a spread to the baby's shouted "STOP!" after which the parents substitute soft kisses for tickles. Available simultaneously: Toot. Up to age 3. Agent: Rebeccca Sherman, Writers House.

        Starred review from July 1, 2014
        Patricelli's mischievous, gender-indeterminate cherub claims to be tickle-proof, but readers know the giggles are inevitable.Dad (aka "tickle Monster") finds all the places on this diaper-clad tot's body that are ticklish, such as legs, feet and tummy (everywhere, in fact). Mom, a licking dog, and a playful kitty get into the act too in the one of the book's central double-page spreads. When the youngster has had too much, the little one yells "Stop," and the family kindly obliges and commences kissing, slurping and purring instead. In a final dare to readers and their grown-ups, the child boldly proclaims "I am not ticklish! / Are you?" In the companion title, Toot, the same half-naked toddler celebrates flatulence, declaring in the end that "All toots are funny!" No child is going to argue with that point. Patricelli's trademark style of thick black lines on brushstroke-heavy backgrounds in jewel-tone colors are perfectly suited to her playful and irreverent subject matter. The young protagonist narrates both offerings in simple, direct sentences, and Patricelli fills the rest of the books with captions and sound effects galore (including "fart," natch). Both titles are playful delights.Here's hoping this cheeky tyke never grows up so young readers and their delighted grown-ups can enjoy more adventures (and misadventures, too). (Board book. 6 mos.-3)
