Product Details


This is simultaneously a sweet story of a beginning and a sly exploration of epistemology (Ergo’s name works nicely as a Cartesian reference as well as an egg-sounding term), with an additional message about the value of breaking past isolation to connect. Schwarz’s simple, fluid line and watercolor illustrations get a lot of mileage out of Ergo’s wide, wondering eyes, and the palette stealthily begins to add tones on top of the basic yellow and black as Ergo grasps more about the world. Kids of different ages will appreciate this at different levels, but they’ll all be prompted to think more about how they know what they know.
—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Now for a picture book to truly work it must be a collaboration between the story/text and the art. Mr. Deacon’s text is fantastic. Ms. Schwarz’s art, however, elevates it.
—A Fuse #8 Production
