Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Things are not always what they appear to be in this mezmerizing tale of a bee and a bird's epic journey. These brilliantly hued illustrations by Craig Frazier look good enough to eat, and the simple but surprising story will entrance young readers . . . and everyone else.

Review:

"Frazier's (Lots of Dots) crisp graphic sense and supersaturated fields of red, yellow, green, and light blue drive this wordless picture book. Its focus is the play of view and perspective, using the striped, gossamer-winged Bee and red Bird as subjects. The first spread shows columns of yellow and black — what can they be? — and the next pulls back enough to reveal Bee viewed from above, perched on the gigantic head of Bird; from Bee's point of view, Bird's head is the size of a planet. This book is first cousin to Istvan Banyai's Zoom: it also plays with the idea that something that appears very large (Bird and Bee aboard a sailboat, on what looks like an endless span of stylized waves) turns out to be quite small (it's a toy boat held in the hand of a boy). Here, though, the action takes place on a single stage; Bird and Bee are always there, and the scenery against which they appear is always real. The strong primary colors vibrate against each other, and the patterns have the attractive pull of a billboard. Ages 2 — 6. (May)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

In this wordless picture book, a bumblebee and a bird embark on a travel adventure.

When my kid was almost 2, this was her favorite book. It uses primary colors and simple graphics to miraculously build anticipation. Of course, my daughter knew what was coming and loved to shout either "Bird!" or "Bee!" Pretty amazing for her self esteem, but pretty boring for me.
