Recommended for: preschool story time
Read in April, 2008

Bold colors leap from the die cut pages in this beautifully illustrated preschool-geared book about how things transform. CIP:
A book about transformations - from egg to chicken, seed to flower, and caterpillar to butterfly. But, also, a book about creativity as paint becomes picture, word becomes story, and commonplace becomes extraordinary.

"...Another perfectly pitched triumph from an emerging master of the concept book..." Kirkus Review

"...The best picture books create a world in themselves, and this tour de force is one of them..." Horn Book
