Author Biography

Brother-and-sister team Patrick and Emily Hruby collaborated on this charming little book. As kids growing up in a log cabin in the woods of Idaho, they were raised loving the abundant nature all around them. Emily often made up poetic stories for Patrick's imaginative drawings. As Los Angeles transplants, they each continue to pursue their respective passions for writing and illustrating. This is their first book together. Patrick Hruby grew up to study math and physics before attending the renowned Art Center College of Design and pursuing a career as an illustrator. His interest in the geometry of nature is central to his work. Influenced by artists and designers such as Charley Harper, Paul Rand, and Mary Blair, Hruby has gone on to develop his own stunning and modern aesthetic. Emily Hruby's love of literature, language, and traveling led her to graduate studies in English to ultimately pursue a career as a writer. As a child she was endlessly amazed by her older brother Patrick's artistic talent. As adults, they continue to collaborate on creative projects and travel together in the hunt for adventure and new inspiration.

Review

-This counting book is different from other counting books in the cumulative way that it displays the counted objects. The object is introduced and the next page shows the object along with the previous object that has been counted. By the end of the book, there is a garden full of objects that the child can then count. I also liked how the counted objects were different from ordinary -garden things- such as earth worms, turnips, Easter lilies. Children will expand their vocabulary while learning to count.- --Youth Services Book Review -An intriguing slant on the garden, from roots below the earth to the insect inhabitants above the ground. ... There's no denying the striking visual impact. A concept fully ripe for the harvest.- --Kirkus Reviews -The bold, colorful pictures in 'Counting in the Garden' could easily adorn a shopping bag for a tony London department store.- --ForeWord Reviews -There was something deeply satisfying in how the Hrubys chose to display the plants, insects, and animals of this book. From a design standpoint alone I think it's notable. The counting is just the icing on the cake.- --School Library Journal "An intriguing slant on the garden, from roots below the earth to the insect inhabitants above the ground. ...
