Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Watch as a tiny seed grows through the seasons into a fine pear tree in this beautifully presented first book from Jenny Bowers. This format showcases vibrant artwork with more than twenty-five flaps that you lift to discover creatures hidden in every scene. The charming text makes this the perfect interactive primer to a key scientific topic.

Review:

"Williams and Bowers use the growth of a pear tree as a lens to focus this quiet, atmospheric tour of the seasons. Over six scenes, a pear seed bursts from the ground, blossoms, and feeds and shelters various animals: 'The moon and stars rise up above/ with winter now in sight./ The little pear tree, once a seed,/ is a home tonight.' The matte cardboard pages are well-suited to the flatness of Bowers's digital collages, and several flaps on each page reveal animals, plants, and more. Lifting a magenta blossom uncovers a nest of pale blue eggs, while a seed hides behind a silhouetted seedpod in the final scene, suggesting a cycle that will begin again the following spring. Ages 2 — 5." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Jenny Bowers is one-tenth of the U.K.-based illustration collective Peepshow. Her work all starts with a paintbrush and a tube of black paint. Her clients include AOL, Bloomingdales, Elle Decoration, the Guardian, Samsung, and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
