Maurice England

Following a 12 year run as a long haul trucker, Maurice England moved to the Chicago area in the fall of 2006 to continue the cultivation of his life long interest in the expressive arts and oral interpretation. A veteran audiophile, Maurice listened to well over 1,000 audio books while on the road and fell in love with the genre. While his narration experience has primarily been non-fiction, personal development, and spiritual growth titles, Maurice anticipates using his authentically warm and folksy southern style to entertain and inspire through storytelling.

    Little Duck learns how to celebrate his birthday with a little help from all the other farm animals!

    "Cronin merrily describes their preparations in repeating language ("The chickens take a dust bath to look their best. They shimmy shake, shimmy shake, shimmy shake clean"), but the real fun comes as Little Duck mimics each animal, getting frizzier, dustier, and muddier in the process. It's goofy birthday fun that will probably have some readers shimmy shaking and slurp a lurping along with the animals." - Publishers Weekly

    The night before Christmas and all through the farm, not a creature is stirring, not even a...duck?

    "This is a Christmas story that has it all: beloved characters, physical humor, and an original idea, as well as a short, funny text that effectively uses repeated phrases. Lewin's loose watercolor illustrations with bold outlines are cozy in the interior scenes and magical in the outdoor settings, with midnight blue skies, dots of white snow, and a hazy full moon that shows off Santa and his reindeer. An endearing story that will appeal to a wide age range, including preschoolers, new readers, and older kids who love the Click Clack crowd." - Kirkus Review (Starred Review)
