Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K–The red from a field of poppies washes over the world after a long rainstorm. Hedgehog follows the path of crimson as it makes its mark on everything, from fox feet and a man's beard to fish scales and river light. Bleached of their color, the flowers are restored to their original shade with a can of paint by the enterprising Hedgehog. This salute to red has a few misses, as when the thorns mentioned are barely visible. However, Shaughnessy's line drawings are dynamic, with spots of scarlet as embellishment. The animal's personality charms from the first spread, as it uses a newspaper to avoid rain while wearing red rain boots. Hedgehog also mails a love letter, knits directly from a ram's coat, and cuts out a paper butterfly banner. Martin's rhythmic text and use of repetition and alliteration, coupled with graceful scenes of nature celebrating the day's downpour, make a soothing read aloud.–Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VAα(c) Copyright 2013.

Really like the whimsey of this book, the poetry and the illustrations. Highly recommend as it looks at everyday things in totally new, imaginative ways. My grand children love it and love to talk about the pictures as we read it.

Format: Hardcover
A sweet hedgehog leads us on a magical little journey in Downpour by Emily Martin. There is a nice mixture of fantasy and an encouragement to look really closely and carefully at the world. The illustrations are charming and the theme of the red color of the poppies washing off on other objects actually highlights other objects in a provocative way. Poets and philosophers can ponder the significance, or young children can simply delight in the red beaks of curious birds, the foxes red toes, and the beating hearts of bees, and more.

This book is a delight for kids or adults. The sweet, fun story of following the colors that run in the rain and paired with the wonderful illustrations make it a true joy to read.
