Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his new picture book, Etsy indie artist and Monkey World creator Matthew Porter creates a parade of colorful animals that trot, run, and scamper across the pages. A tiger chases a bear, which chases a pig, which chases a fox, and on it goes! To find out who is chasing whom, simply turn the page. Using bold colors and distressed pinewood, Porter creates texture and movement in his artwork. His unique medium puts him in good company with other popular indie illustrators such as Nikki McClure and Kate Endle.

"[Matthew Porter is] the undisputed king of the hipster board book genre." --School Library Journal

Review:

"Everyone loves a good chase, and Porter uses one to let readers guess the identity of each animal in the chain based on their tail. The first animal, an elephant with green almond-shaped eyes and a swoopy trunk, is pursuing 'a black-and-orange-striped tail.' The tiger to whom that tail belongs, meanwhile, is running after a 'short, brown tail' on the subsequent spread. The texture of the pinewood on which Porter paints bleeds through the images, and his animals — while entirely friendly and appealing — also have a static, almost totemic quality, as though the chase were part of a larger folktale. Up to age 4." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
