I was delighted by Gal's exuberant palette of color, textures and patterns, her use of light as our pigs are silhouetted in shadow against a bright window, or the contrast of vividly colored plants and bugs against the dark loam of the garden. She captures winsome gesture and attitude in every pig, bird, bug, pert hat, and dandelion puff. Even the sun and the harvest moon glow like beaming guardians over their charges. Every posture rings true, like a "baby" held aloft, a bit unsure of his cooing neighbor;"kids" playing kick the can or "mom's" affectionate smile tucking in the little ones.
Amazon's "about the author" reveals that she worked for Disney animation as an "actor with a pencil" before returning to California. Disney classics such as Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, the toons of Roger Rabbit, win us with empathy for the characters' dreams, our willing suspension of disbelief in magic, - done with artful rendering and...great storytelling.
Watch for the recurring bee as well!
I love this book & have purchased copies for adult friends as well as their kids.
