Product Details


“Through spirited poetry and rough-and-tumble painted-collage art, this ebullient picture book shows us the best of both worlds.”—The New York Times

★  ”Absence not only makes the heart grow fonder in this tribute to city, country, and family—it can be a source of fresh perspectives, too.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“A good choice for read-alouds. Qualls’ signature textured illustrations, done in acrylic paint, collage, and pencil, elevate and add character”Kirkus Reviews

“In this beautiful, fresh take on city versus country life, readers are the winners.”—Booklist

“Qualls’ multimedia illustrations work their magic not only through depictions of the brown-skinned cousins’ joyful activities, but also through subtle visual contrasts. . . . this will be the perfect pick for kids itching to be—just for a little while—somewhere, anywhere else.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
