Review:

Peter Malone's mysterious-occasionally bordering on the surreal-pictures totally capture our attention and encourage flights of fancy related to the well-chosen words. There are quotes from sources as varied as Inuit folklore and such poets as the Irish Nobel-Prize winner, Seamus Heaney, e. e. cummings and Emily Dickinson. Likely to be a favorite is a quote from author Kate Guess for the word book: "As a child I had two copies of each of my favorite books: one for the bathtub and one for dry land." We smile, we ponder what is being said and, most important perhaps, we experience the weight and importance of words. Not a small achievement for a picture book! Children are likely to pour over the illustrations again and again. The import of the words may come more slowly. It's an unusual work. RECOMMENDED. -- From Parents' Choice®
