Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
 "Attention midcentury modern parents: The glorious work of Charley Harper, a visionary American illustrator, is here in board book format to complement your toddler's Oeuf bouncer and Dwell crib. Close-up extracts from classic Harper drawings are artfully used to illustrate colors...certain to mesmerize all ages." —The New York Times Book Review
Kirkus Reviews
A geometric wonderland fails to delight in this specific format. Wildlife artist Harper's recognizable designs create a kaleidoscope of vibrant images. Some spare selections feature characters representative of his work with the natural world (birds play a predominate role). "Two girls swimming in blue water" appears an odd choice for the targeted age group. Their waiflike appearance--they wear flimsy black bikinis and have pointed faces, thinning hair and hands fading into nonexistence--seems positively witchy. Changing colors of type coordinate with the featured hues. The text definitely plays second fiddle to the images. "Yellow leaves, orange leaves, red leaves and more!" is disappointingly unclear; "[a] tan-colored car and a secret experiment" tantalizes without providing any meaning; "[t]wo colorful birds on pointy green leaves" simply describes what viewers see. The distinctively retro designs are busy and chic, but hopelessly out of sync with the audience's developmental needs. For adult readers, type the same shade as the background makes for a difficult read. Visually refreshing, but a bad fit for this young audience. (Board book. 2-4)

He explained, "I don't count the feathers; I just count the wings."
