Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this collaboration between artist Kate Endle and "kindie rockstar" Caspar Babypants, a young girl's fascination with animals in nature is captured in captivating, colorful spreads and a gentle sing-song text. The artists signature cut-paper collages are full of detail and Based on one of Kate Endle's enduring memories from her own childhood in which she wished she could commune with the birds, frogs, rabbits, and butterflies that she encountered. Readers are invited to share that sense of wonder and love for the animal world in this captivating book.

Free MP3 download of the song based on the text of Woodland Wish performed by Caspar Babypants!

Review:

"Eye-catching collages depict gentle animals whose habitats are brightened by different light sources: 'Rooster wakes in the dawn light./ Black bear sleeping in the winter light.' A raccoon snacks on a piece of fruit by a campfire, while a whale sprays 'in the fog light' and a cat curls up 'in the bedside light.' Endle varies her compositions with warm and cool colors; visual textures suggest smoothness of glass and the roughness of gravel. When it's time to turn off the lights, readers will likely request a rereading. A recording by Babypants (aka Chris Ballew, lead singer for the Presidents of the United States of America) is available for download." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Caspar Babypants — aka Seattleite Chris Ballew, lead singer of The Presidents of the United States of America — might have the name recognition, but it's his wife Kate Endle's charming paper-cut illustrations that stand out in the duo's two new books." The Seattle Times
