it was amazing
bookshelves: childrens-picture-books

An enchanting story, full of beautiful simplicity and the type of circular storytelling that I loved as a child. The Caldecott-winning, scratchboard art illustrations are what really won me over, though. They are exquisite, intricate, unique and breathtaking! Amazing how such "dark" illustrations can radiate warmth and light--you'll feel the bright yellows glow right into your heart!

Angie I have been waiting to get this from the library! I feel like it is taking forever!

Angie This book is wonderful! I LOVED it. The drawings were beautiful it is amazing what an artist can do with a few colors.

Manybooks I found it kind of freaky that a few of the "top" reviews seem to claim that if you like or understand the book you should be sent to rehab for drug use, sigh.
