Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I am in the poppy, said the bee. I am in the nest, said the bird. I am in space, said the planet . . .

From bestselling author and illustrator duo Fani Marceau and Joëlle Jolivet comes an art-immersive experience featuring early concepts and themes for infants, toddlers, and anyone delighted by the wonders of everyday life. Inspired by linocut art techniques, the illustrations offer windows onto ordinary objects and experiences. Open the book, delve into the details, and discover animals, people, and surprises large and small gracing each oversized page in this whimsical book that makes the perfect springboard for storytelling, learning, and dreaming.

Review:

"Marceau and Jolivet, the French duo behind the oversize foldout book Panorama, return with another idiosyncratic project, one that feels like a cousin to Blexbolex's Seasons and People. First published in France, the book presents more than 50 simple, stately linocuts of people, animal, and objects, each of which (or whom) declares its location. 'I am in the bed, said the dog,' reads one page, as a black-and-white pup stares beseechingly at readers. 'I am in the dark, said the child,' appears opposite, as a boy (in his own bed) peers at the golden light peeking from beneath his bedroom door. Creamy shades of blue, violet, orange, and green contribute to a sedate mood; while the book offers opportunities to discuss the meaning of 'in,' the repeating statements of being on each page give each subject subtle anthropomorphic dimension — even when said subject is defined by absence ('I am in the cheese, said the hole'). Readers may find themselves dreaming about what the future might hold for the pebble nestled in a shoe, the abandoned soccer ball in a field, and the princess in a painting. Ages 3 — 5. (Aug.)"
