Praise

* “Hesterman debuts with 16 poems that lightheartedly chart the development of a family of robins. . . . A perfect fit for Ruzzier’s gently surreal brand of cartooning. . . . It’s a charmer of an animal family story, with rhymes that are a pleasure to read aloud.”Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Punchy poems that beg to be read aloud follow a pair of robins through parenthood. . . . Hesterman alternates solid vocabulary—‘lair,’ ‘clutch,’ ‘slumber,’ ‘fledgling’—with delightful made-up words. . . . Rhymes and rhythms are spot-on and will hold rapt both lap readers and storytime audiences, the onomatopoeia adding to the fun. . . . Ruzzier’s pen-and-ink-and watercolor illustrations show cartoon robins with anthropomorphic poses and facial expressions in a habitat that seems a combination of Dr. Seuss and the scenery from Road Runner. An enjoyably rhythmic slice of robin life for young naturalists and bird-watchers.”Kirkus Reviews
