Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1–Cousin's signature style is back in this enchanting picture book about a baby woodpecker. On the opening page, the bird is learning how to peck a tree. The little guy soon gets carried away and pecks not just through a tree, but also through a hat, a mat, tennis rackets, and a jacket. This book takes readers through an entire house from the front door to the bathroom. In the kitchen, “I peck, peck, peck/an eggplant,/a tangerine,/a butter dish,/a nectarine,/a green bean,/a sardine,/and seventeen jelly beans.” Invoking memories of Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar, there are also small cutout circles on each page. They grow more numerous as the woodpecker gets more and more carried away. With the detailed illustrations done in thick, dark lines and rhymes that flow easily, this book begs to be shared at storytime.–Brooke Rasche, La Crosse Public Library, WIα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

*Starred Review* The real holes in the front cover—and a little woodpecker making a new one—get this off to a fun start, and there’s more playfulness inside. The book begins with the daddy woodpecker showing his son how to hold tight on a tree and peck, peck, peck, peck, peck the wood. With the basic skill mastered, it’s time for the youngster to get going, pecking through a fence and a front door. Once inside, everything’s fair game: a hat, the mat, a tennis racket, and a jacket. Then pecking begins in the closet, the bedroom, and the kitchen. Although the book might sound like a one-trick pony, it not only has irresistible charm but in Cousins’ signature fashion, there’s a lot to learn. The text mentions each of the peckable items, so as Woody pecks holes in the toilet, the sink, etc., children will be able to point them out on the page. Sometimes, not every item is obvious—for instance, the shampoo in the medicine cabinet—so kids will have to use their skills of observation to pick (not peck) the items. With pure, solid colors as backgrounds and illustrations that feature Cousins’ recognizable chunky pictures outlined in black, the artwork has immediate kid appeal. There’s a world of interactive enjoyment here, but make sure a part of it isn’t letting small fingers make those many holes just a little bit bigger! Preschool-Kindergarten. --Ilene Cooper

My 4-year-old daughter and I loved this book, because its plot was full of holes! :)

Completely frivolous with no agenda, I loved the simple innocence of the story. So child-like and beautiful.

This book is adorable. My daughter loves it and requires us to read it to her at least once a day. She loves to touch the little holes in each page and repeats the title phrase over and over. Very cute book, great illustrations, too.

Anyone who works or lives with young children will appreciate the humor of this book. When young children first learn to do something they do it over and over and over again, which is exactly what happens in this book. I think young children will find this book very enjoyable, especially pointing out the 'holes' that the young bird pecks in the pages. Finally, the young bird exhausts himself and heads home. I had to laugh at this just because I can see an exhausted parent following a young child around hoping they will eventually tire of what they are doing. Lucy Cousins just seems to have a firm grip on how young children think and act making her books a great resource for parents.

Great book! We got this from the library, then ended up buying one for our daughter and two for our friends.

• Sweet, fun story. Plus it actually features the dad and child, which is somewhat rare compared to mom/kid stories.
• Cute illustrations, including actual "pecked" holes that go right through the pages!
• Nice large size and very sturdy – great as a gift for people with young kids from baby to toddler.

I'm sure that some very sensitive people will not like the fact that the young woodpecker basically destroys someone's home, and is applauded by the dad woodpecker, but it's kinda' funny if you don't take it seriously.

I'm sure we'll be buying more for future birthdays/baby showers. Highly recommended!

We got this for my son when he was about 2.3 years old, and he just loved it. We're a fan of Cousins' Maisy series, but this one is a great little standalone book with fun holes for little fingers to poke through. It was also a nice way for him to pick up new words, as the book does a good job of picturing various household items and listing them in a fun, engaging way.

I have read this book hundreds of time to our little one. She loves engaging with the story and putting fingers in every hole in the pages.
