The illustrations that accompany the poems are sweet and magical and restrained. The poems are all of different syntax and tempo, making each page an interesting new read.

It is rare to win both the Newberry Medal Award and a Caldecott Honor Award for the same book.
Well worth the accolades, this book is lushly illustrated with a silly manner that keeps the readers attention while smiling at the creativity. In addition, well-written poems in the style of William Blake hold the readers interest. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
