Praise for Bee & Bird

“This engaging picture book is ideal for a one-on-one lapsit and will be enjoyed by youngsters who are attracted to the brilliant colors and mysterious patterns.” –School Library Journal

“Done in Frazier’s signature style, the illustrations are filled with simple, bold patterns in primary colors, and everything is thoughtfully abstracted into geometric patterns and shapes.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Frazier's (Lots of Dots) crisp graphic sense and supersaturated fields of red, yellow, green, and light blue drive this wordless picture book…The strong primary colors vibrate against each other, and the patterns have the attractive pull of a billboard.” -Publishers Weekly
