Reviews

"This is a celebration in text and art of words, of language, and of the spaces between and their possibilities. Appropriately enough, the book itself is also filled with possibilities-for reading aloud, for performing, for general language arts use-and kids will savor it however they meet it." --The Bulletin, starred review

"* In 12 tantalizing poems, written in English and Spanish, Paschkis shows herself to be a sensitive observer of the animal kingdom, as well as of language itself, finding humor, eccentricities, and unexpected connections in both." --Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

"An excellent Spanish-English collection of poetry on animals. . . . The Spanish and English poems are on opposite facing pages, with the artwork seamlessly sewing both versions together." --SLJ

"* Paschkis' lush, earth-toned paintings . . . teem with the florid stream of words and images populating the inner world of the budding poetic consciousness." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review on Pablo Neruda

"The attributes that Brown has selected to share and her simple but impassioned telling combine with Paschkis's vibrant, decorative style for a book high in child appeal." --School Library Journal on Pablo Neruda
