A honeybee and a bumblebee have a chat.
A rose offers a worm a bit of its compost.
A mouse assures a root of its importance.

These fun rhyming poems for two voices are blooming, bursting, and buzzing with personality. Eugene Yelchin’s stunning illustrations beautifully accent Carole Gerber’s unusual conversations. Together, they offer a close-up view of the plant and insect worlds, with an amazing amount of information about them.

All around us, under our feet, thousands of interactions and transformations are taking place. This book gives the reader a chance to listen in.

Praise for Seeds, Bees, Butterflies, and More!

"An appealing blend of classic botanical intricacy, retro design charm, and freewheeling and airy modernity." -- BCCB

 

"A pleasing introduction to plant biology with cross-curricular appeal." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The airy poems are pleasing..."-- Publishers Weekly

"Yelchin’s bright, graphite and gouache illustrations are almost impressionistic; they catch the eye and complement the text well. This collection will educate youngsters while showing them a fun way to read poetry." -- School Library Journal

"The science is solid and the dual voicing makes these poems ideal for

classroom performances." -- Booklist

 

Praise for Won Ton:
* “Heartwarming.” —Booklist, starred review

* “Perfect pussycat poetry.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* “Will steal the hearts of readers young and old.” —School Library Journal, starred review

 

Praise for Breaking Stalin’s Nose, a Newbery Honor Book:

* “This brief novel gets at the heart of a society that asks its citizens, even its children, to report on relatives and friends. Appropriately menacing illustrations by first-time novelist Yelchin add a sinister tone.” —The Horn Book, starred review

 

 

 

Praise for Winter Leaves:
“The blend of play, science, poetry, and art is beautiful.” —Booklist

 

Praise for Leaf Jumpers:
“Image-packed poetry. . . . A great introduction to the season.” —School Library Journal
