Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3—Grapevine immediately announces itself as playfully idiomatic. When Bird isn't certain of what Turtle's told him (the watering hole's humor is "drying up"), he sparks a series of misunderstandings. He tells Elephant that the watering hole itself is drying up. As word spreads from Elephant to Snake to Crocodile, and so on, the confusion builds as the animals are caught in an unintended game of telephone. The simple pen-and-ink and watercolor spreads are imaginative and employ a picture frame that the unruly animals often break through. Beard uses a subtle palette as well as brightly colored pages with plenty of white space. Budding artists will appreciate the humor of the elegantly stylized illustrations. This offering is ripe for lessons on idiomatic expressions, rumors, gossip, the age-old game of telephone, and life at an African watering hole.—Teresa Pfeifer, Alfred Zanetti Montessori Magnet School, Springfield, MA END
