Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a mere 19 words (yo appears twice, yes six times) the author/artist of Charlie Parker Played Be Bop presents a spirited conversation on a city sidewalk that is, in itself, a complete drama. Two boys meet as strangers. One hails the other, who is cautious. The first persists. The other responds. Gradually they begin to talk and end up as friends.

Review:

"Raschka's watercolor and charcoal pencil illustrations certainly do the trick — they're brash, witty and offbeat, and easily portray a vigorous range of emotion. At least in the small realm of this cheeky picture book, less is definitely more." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Raschka exhibits an appreciation of the rhythms of both language and human exchange in his deceptively simple story." Hornbook Guide to Children

Review:

"[A] natural jumping-off place for discussions of friendship, race relations, and even language." Booklist

Review:

"Amusing for story times, or for use in discussions of feelings, it is fun to read and look at, and appealing to the eye, ear, and heart." School Library Journal

I read this book to kids who range between 14 months and 2 years old and each one of them love it. This book is a really great one and is easy for this age to get into. I love it too. It is so awesome to sit and read and after each page the kids are repeating each word.
