Product Details

Praise

“The lightly handled alliteration and rhyme, along with the monosyllabic and repeated vocabulary, will help fledgling readers decipher the text . . . Florian’s highly detailed yet painterly illustrations were created with gouache watercolor, colored pencil and collage on primed paper bag. The result is lovely, textured illustration that begs readers to touch the page.”—The New York Times

“A perfect ode to the joys of reading and writing.”—School Library Journal

“With short sentences and simple vocabulary, Florian spins a clever tale that will please both new readers and younger children just getting used to stories with a real plot. . . . A subtle, accomplished story with few words but a big overall effect.”—Kirkus Reviews

“a successful addition to a book-themed storytime, as well as a useful touchstone text for parents, teachers, and librarians introducing lifelong reading habits to the young’uns.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
