Original Language: Russian
Kindergarten-Grade 4 --The same whimsical faces and stylish furniture seen in the team's The Pup Grew Up! (Holt, 1989) are found in this striking book. Mail carriers around the world chase down a man in order to deliver a specially posted envelope. " 'A certified letter for John Peck/Postmarked from Schenectady.'/ 'A certified letter for John Peck?/ But he left yesterday!' " Rain, shine , and gloom of night pose no problems for resolute mail workers in hot pursuit of the world traveller. His letter is successfully delivered, and the jaunty poem ends with a paean to the postal system. As in their earlier collaboration, the book's strong graphic style echoes commercial art of the 20s, making this an unusual visual treat. Here Radunsky uses background color instead of glossy white paper, giving the pages a subdued, muddied tone. Marshak's poem is fun and sophisticated, creating a contemporary picture book with an international flair. --Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Regional Library, Alexandria, VA
