Editorial Reviews

Review

“Perfectly seamless; words and art are interwoven in a dance that enchants. Inventive and lovely.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A timeless feel and an outstanding picture book.” ―Booklist, starred review

“A wizard of wordplay and a maestro of composition combine their considerable talents to explore the notion of home . . . Stirring to the eye and the spirit, this evocative book repays frequent readings.” ―School Library Journal, starred review

“[A] lyrical meditation.” ―Publisher’s Weekly

“Imaginative and colorful.” ―Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

“[A] rhythmic, read-aloud-perfect tale . . . poetic and visually striking.” ―Horn Book

If You Want to See A Whale:

“Fogliano's words are carved and measured. This is a writer who takes her time, and the leaps she makes with language surprise and thrill.” ―The New York Times

“A gorgeous love song to the imagination . . . It's breathtaking . . . Fans will be waiting.” ―Booklist, starred review

“Readers will gape at the two enormous, whale-sized talents at work in this transfixing picture book.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

And Then It's Spring:

“In an understated and intimate partnership, Fogliano and Stead conjure late winter doldrums and the relief of spring's arrival, well worth the wait.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Many treasures lie buried within this endearing story, in which humor and anxious anticipation sprout alongside one another.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Fogliano's poetic yet grounded narrative is reminiscent of Charlotte Zolotow's picture-book texts in its understatement and straightforward, childlike observations.” ―The Horn Book, starred review

Grandpa Green:

“[Lane Smith's] illustrations, a blend of line drawings and sponge painting, have a classic feel, and make clever use of the topiary theme, rewarding close examination and repeated reading.” ―The New Yorker

“Lush and magical.” ―People

“An unassuming little masterpiece . . . The book's power lies in its rich, allusive artistry.” ―New York Times Book Review

“It's a rare glimpse into Smith's softer side―as skillful as his more sly offerings, but crafted with honesty and heart.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Visually intriguing and emotionally resonant, this is a book to pore over and talk about.” ―School Library Journal, starred review

“Sketched with a finely lined fairy-tale wispiness and dominated by verdant green, the illustrations are not just creative but poignant.” ―Booklist

About the Author

Julie Fogliano is the New York Times–bestselling author of And Then It’s Spring and If You Want to See a Whale, as well as the poetry collection, When Green Becomes Tomatoes.

When she is not folding laundry or wondering what to make for dinner, she is staring out the window waiting for a book idea to fly by.

Lane Smith is the author and illustrator of Caldecott Honor book Grandpa Green, runaway New York Times bestseller It's a Book, Kate Greenaway Medalist There Is a Tribe of Kids, and A Perfect Day, among others.
