Product Details


★ ”An abundantly illustrated puzzle poem provides a spectacular celebration of green in the world. The author of the Moxy Maxwell chapter-book trilogy offers something completely different in this lush tribute. . . Desimini’s imaginative illustrations complement and extend the graphically flexible text. . . Two fertile imaginations grow a grand salute.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

” . . . Desimini’s mixed-media collages incorporate scanned images of fabrics, photographs, and other objects to create whimsically surreal images that highlight the variety of greenery found on Earth.” —Publishers Weekly

“In this creatively illustrated picture book, the color green comes to life in a varied and substantial way through brilliant text and mixed-media artwork . . . As this well-written book ends, the great big green thing is revealed with pomp and circumstance that will delight and encourage a second reading.” — School Library Journal
