About the Author

Sue Soltis is a published poet. About Nothing Like a Puffin, her first picture book, she says, "Writing this book was a great exercise in logic. Plus I loved thinking about puffins, with their bright beaks and neat dives. Someday, I hope to see one fly!" Sue Soltis lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Bob Kolar is the author-illustrator of Big Kicks. He has illustrated many other books for young readers, including AlphaOops! The Day Z Went First and AlphaOops! H Is for Halloween, both by Alethea Kontis. Bob Kolar lives in Missouri.

Reviews

Several essential facts about puffins emerge from this engaging, cheerful and astonishingly simple taxonomic exercise, filled with humor and a dynamic conversational style both visual and textual...What makes two things alike and what makes them different-what, indeed, confers individuality and the quality of being uniquely amazing-is exuberantly celebrated in a puffin-affectionate package.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

A playful exploration of unexpected comparisons with twists that will have readers reconsidering the ways in which disparate things can be surprisingly similar.
--Publishers Weekly

A bit of humor, visual hints, opportunities for inference, and motion-inspired figures pull readers from page to page.
--School Library Journal

Kids will easily pick up the game; be prepared to read this one again and again.
--The Horn Book

A charming debut picture book... The simple text is likely to draw children in with its conversational tone as well as its cliffhanger page-turns... A fun, thought-provoking look at how we classify the world around us.
