REVIEWS

Praise for Banana!

“With big, bold spreads and only two words ("Banana" and "Please"), Vere's (The Getaway) story about sharing packs impressive graphic force.” –Publishers Weekly

“A lively title to share in a toddler storytime.” –Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“A fun choice for sharing with a group.” –School Library Journal

“Minimalist text gains expression through varied punctuation and typeface, while speech balloons and other comic-book conventions (not to mention one spectacular simian tantrum) evoke a certain pigeon. Bold, expressive colors and exuberant lines characterize the artwork.” –Kirkus Reviews
