Daniel Wiseman likes to draw. He likes it so much, he’s made a career out of it. Usually he draws animals wearing clothes, or kids enjoying a good dance party. However, when prodded, he’s been known to draw pretty much anything else. Daniel currently lives in St. Louis, MO with his beautiful wife and his equally beautiful son. When he isn’t drawing, he can usually be found doing one of these great things: Perfecting his biscuit recipe, hiking up a mountain in some faraway location, singing loudly inhis car, riding his bike on the mean streets of St. Louis, or napping.

Editorial Review

"Music-loving kids will go nuts for this interactive book. . . . Wiseman’s illustrations shine with bold strokes and bright colors and an inclusive cast of kid musicians. The book ends, of course, with thunderous applause." -School Library Journal
"Wiseman's art cleverly makes each instrument something readers can ‘play’ . . . Whether it's storytime for a large group or one-on-one laptime, just try and stop kids from following this book's titular encouragement." -Kirkus Reviews
"Eye-catching for young readers. . . . A fun, interactive read-aloud perfect for a ­pet-themed storytime." -School Library Journal on PET THIS BOOK
"The inclusion of lively sound effects for each animal will indeed encourage interactive participation . . . and the bold illustrations make this a natural for read-alouds." -Booklist on PET THIS BOOK
