“…made to order for the summer storyhour crowd as well as quiet lapsits under a shady tree.”--School Library Journal, starred Praise for Won Ton: “Perfect pussycat poetry.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review “[A] celebration of the child-pet bond.”—Booklist, starred review “Will steal the hearts of readers young and old.”—School Library Journal, starred review Praise for At the Beach: “Lee’s mellow-hued collages feature a multicultural crowd of beach goers, while elaborate cut-outs grace the borders, echoing the fluid line of the Chinese characters. It’s a remarkably unified effort: everything works together to create a flawless picture book.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review Praise for In the Snow: “As the characters begin to build on one another, children will be able to see and appreciate the pictorial nature of Chinese writing. . . . The textured paper, vibrant winter clothing, animals in their fur and feathers, and snowflake-decorated colored borders create a lively atmosphere for this memorable lesson in Chinese writing.” —Booklist
No childhood is complete without singing Old MacDonald, and given artist Gris Grimly’s own personal connection to the poem, his wild and wooly spin makes perfect sense for a new generation (and son). Hueing to a watercolor palette of oranges & browns and with Grimly’s signature creature concoctions, this inventive take will delight the plethora of storytime folk who will squeal in delight at the surprise ending.
