Dumpy La Rue

by Elizabeth Winthrop

Henry Holt and Co., 40 pages, Size: 8.25 x 10.25, full-color throughout, Hardcover Picture Book
Age: 4-9, Grade: Pre-4, Pub Year: 2001

Everyone told Dumpy La Rue that pigs don't dance. But Dumpy knew better. He closed his eyes and twirled to the tune inside his head. The whole barnyard gathered around, and soon hooves were stomping, wings were flapping, and feet were stamping out a beat.

Elizabeth Winthrop's romping, rhyming story and Betsy Lewin's exuberant illustrations will have readers tapping their toes, jumping for joy, and dancing a jig with this passionate pig.

Elizabeth Winthrop has written more than forty books for readers of all ages. These books include Promises, also illustrated by Betsy Lewin; Shoes, illustrated by William Joyce; and the award-winning novel, The Castle in the Attic. Ms. Winthrop lives in New York City. She wishes she could dance as well as Dumpy.

Betsy Lewin is the Caldecott Honor Award-winning illustrator of Click, Clack, Moo! Cows That Type, by Doreen Cronin and A Houseful of Christmas, by Barbara Joosse. She has illustrated more than thirty books for children, many of which she also wrote. Ms. Lewin lives with her husband, artist Ted Lewin, in Brooklyn, New York.
