Looking for an escape from the heat? Kids will laugh out loud at the lively illustrations in Neal Layton s tale of two fun-loving, enterprising mammoths. For wild and woolly mammoths like Oscar and Arabella, playing in the ice and snow and arctic winds of an Ice Age winter is the coolest fun. But when the snow starts to melt, and thousands of brightly colored plants sprout up and irritate their eyes, and insects are swarming, and it just gets hotter and hotter and hotter, it seems there s no end to their misery. Then one day, the shaggy pair comes up with a bright idea. It may be a close shave, but it looks like they ve finally found a way to enjoy the hottest summer ever!"

Author Biography - Neal Layton

Layton uses pencil, paint, ink, and marker, among other media, to create his illustrations. About HOT HOT HOT, he says, "Oscar and Arabella would have lived in the most recent Ice Age, which ended about 10,000 years ago. There probably weren t any combs, mirrors, or scissors then. I made that up. Animals would have had to cut their woolly coats with blunt stone axes. (Just kidding)." Neal Layton holds degrees in graphic design and illustration, and lives in England."
