Publisher Comments:

Playful, kid-friendly poems from five alternating points of view explore the volcanic process and its effect on the surrounding land, flora, and fauna. From the lava crickets to the ferns, everyone has something to say about it! Follow one day--from sunrise to moonrise--on the slopes of a young, about-to-shout volcano.

Science-loving kids will get a kick out of this fun look at an erupting volcano, and the creative poems offer something for everyone.

Review:

"Personified features of a Hawaiian landscape speak in verse during a day in the life of a waking volcano, rendered in Jenkins's atmospheric trademark cut-paper collages. The poems shift between the volcano, a pair of crickets, ferns, the sun, and a winding mountain road, and Peters lends sly dimensions to each voice: the volcano is a literal firecracker ('I'm the baby.... but when I wake up, watch out!'), and the crickets' chirps are transmuted into texts ('Hey, bro, I M way back in the cave. I was ZZZZZZ hard, but that nasty smll woke me up'). A humorous, imaginative, and artful concept. Ages 4 — up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
