About the Author
Ellen Stoll Walsh has written and illustrated numerous beloved books for children, including Balancing Act and the bestselling modern classics Mouse Paint and Mouse Count. She lives in upstate New York.
"Reminiscent of Leo Lionni...this is just the right size for small hands and for sharing one-on-one and also offers an opportunity to talk about the different elements of the story, including cooperation, creativity, and sharing as well as basic physics and math."--Booklist
"This deceptively simple and creative book is loaded with fun...Readers might be fooled into thinking this is just a concept book, but Walsh gives them so much more...This book is full of wonder."--School Library Journal
"With consummate skill, Walsh tells a taunt and dynamic story while introducing some basic physical science to impressive balance of composition, color, and narrative content; the spreads alternate between displays of potential energy and kinetic energy. A lively yet minimal text supports the story beautifully; there's not a word out of place."--The Horn Book Magazine
"The textures and bright colors in the author's cut-paper illustrations pop off the pages...making it easy for young readers to focus on the mathematical concept. Tips the scales in a subject area surprisingly lacking."--Kirkus Reviews
