Starred Review (reviewed on April 1, 2011) Shea's book debut is a clever, rhymed test of kids' notions of living and nonliving things. Slaughter's illustrations bring pop art to mind. Clear a space on the shelves for this one.
--Kirkus ReviewsShea's verses scan consistently and gracefully. Slaughter's primaries push against each other for maximum visual charge. Children will relish the fun of being sure of the answers and they'll love Shea's tongue-in-cheek tone.
