Let's Have a Tree Party! Hardcover – March 13, 2012
Manders’ expressive animals, from slimy slugs to a mischievous raccoon shaking his booty, are the true life of this party.
The full-throttle characterizations and exuberant physicality are reminiscent of vintage animation, while the ever-shifting perspectives give the action a gleefully frenetic, cinematic feel. Thanks to Manders, these critters really are the very picture of party-hearty.
Manders’s comical watercolor, gouache, and pencil illustrations feature a host of cheerful, wide-eyed creatures, from squirrels and possums to mice and slugs. The rhyming text offers opportunities for listener participation.
—School Library Journal
Watercolor, gouache, and pencil drawings add fun to the story.
—Library Media Connection
This feel-good book features fun rhymes (complete with directions, so make sure your preschooler claps, shouts and sings along) and fun pictures with lots of great details. A great book to read when you are in the mood for a celebration.
