Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 3—With the unassuming conceit of a woolgathering walk with his dog, Stead provides readers with snapshots of his creative process as he synthesizes seeds of ideas, conversational tidbits, and artful suggestions from the natural world in surprising and delightful ways. The illustrations—a mixture of Polaroid images, monoprints, and collage—are sheer Stead and simply brilliant.


“The art is glorious, creatively mixing small photographs―presented as Polaroids―with ink and watercolor paintings… a provocative, artful journey.”―School Library Journal, starred review

“In all, Stead has given readers a deeply felt, deeply connected story that is homage to creation―and really quite brilliant.”―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“The multimedia artwork…is amazing, with photographs, collage etchings, and splatter art (example: a blue splash of paint transforms into a horse) mingling across vibrant spreads.”―Booklist, starred review

“Stead’s bits and pieces of drawing and observation, his willingness to lay bare his uncertainty, and his rough sketches of the natural world don’t form a polished or seamless whole. Yet their very fragmentariness tells an important truth about the way artists begin to create.”―Publishers Weekly, starred review

"It will reward those receptive to the notion that the world speaks to those who
listen."―The Horn Book
