“The author cleverly exploits her materials’ textures, shapes, and color gradations in compositions arranged against pastel backgrounds. The yak’s petal-filled amber coat is appropriately shaggy, and the succulents used to create the elephant endow it with a rounded (albeit greenish) form”–Kirkus Reviews
“Collins’s compositions show delicate artistry and an eye for design;”–Publishers Weekly
“This is the most beautiful alphabet book we now own”–Alexis Lampley, Drop and Give Me Nerdy
“It is creative, gorgeous, and awe-inspiring, and you will love seeing how she utilizes these materials to turn each letter into a little masterpiece.”–Happily Ever Elephants
