Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Digital graphics with bold patterns and shapes depict a toucan greeting fellow rainforest animals that are concealed behind die-cut flaps. "Caw! Caw! Who is waking up in the tree?'' A flap adorned with leaves and butterflies lifts vertically to show monkeys climbing and dangling from a tree dotted with frogs. "Who is waking up in the river?" questions the toucan. Underneath a pale blue flap meant to evoke the river are two turtles with geometrically patterned shells. And when the toucan returns to its tree, two little toucans are waiting in a nest: "Time for breakfast!" The latest release from this home furnishings design company maintains the hip, modern vibe of its predecessors. Also available: Goodnight, Owl. Ages 2–up. (Apr.)
Kirkus Reviews

With his elongated beak in Popsicle hues, a chipper toucan makes the rounds of the rainforest.

The bird reaches out to waking creatures hidden behind leaves or paddling in the river with an infectious "Caw! Caw!" An initially generalized question ("Who is waking up?") becomes pointed ("Who is waking up in the tree?") as the persistent investigator treks throughout. Lift the flap of an imposing canopy to reveal the cheery answer. "Good morning, MONKEYS. / Good morning, TREE FROGS." Fluttering butterflies spotlight lush greenery. Unusually thick, intuitive flaps seamlessly flow as part of the spare narrative. Glossy accents add gleam to the sloth's fur or enhance the chameleon's appearance. The comprehensive final scene turns the focus from the tropical setting to familial relationships. The companion, Goodnight Owl, also thrives in the question-and-answer format as characters rest in a quiet, woodsy setting.

Welcoming meet-and-greets for any time of day or night.(Board book. 1-3)
