Little readers of this sunny picture book will have fun guessing along with Millie whom the artist in the meadow is painting - until the final work of art is revealed.

When an artist comes to the meadow, Millie the knobby-kneed calf watches and guesses as he paints each of her colorful friends - Ladybug, Spider, and Bunny. Will he ever paint a picture of me? Millie wonders. Spots . . . skinny legs . . . a swishing tail. It’s Millie! With springlike watercolors and simple, inviting text, Janet Pedersen creates a cheerful story about an innocent and irresistible calf who learns a little about those around her and a lot about herself.

Janet Pedersen is a former designer of children’s books who now writes and illustrates her own. Of MILLIE IN THE MEADOW, she says, "When I was growing up, my family and I spent our summers in Tehachapi, California, where we lived and worked on our ranch. I took care of pigs, chickens, and a baby calf I named Lucy. Lucy was just as knobby-kneed and long-lashed as Millie, and she swished her tail just as often! I like to think Lucy was as happy as Millie, playing in the tall grass with her many colorful friends." This is Janet Pedersen’s first book with Candlewick Press. She lives with her husband and son in Brooklyn, New York.
