Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for PEEP!:

“The art and typography—spare, against a white background—nearly jump off the page as the smallest of four chicks stumbles along in line after the mother hen…The wit of the drawings—in pencil, ink, watercolor and computer—makes the book very appealing.”—New York Times Book Review

*"This deceptively simple-looking little offering is a virtual master class in the subtle techniques for effective picture-book creation."—School Library Journal, Starred Review

"This humorous tale doesn’t preach fearlessness but rather sympathizes with the little chick’s apprehension, and young children will be heartened by Peep’s struggle when facing their own fears."—Booklist

Praise for Maria van Lieshout:

“As light and sweet as cotton candy, this saga of a pig in love will win over kids and grownups alike,” Publishers Weekly, starred review for BLOOM!

“Bloomin’ cute . . . a sweet little tome on loving the one you’re with.” Cool Moms (http://coolmompicks.com)

“BLOOM! is a simple, beautiful story that has shown my daughter that, yes, even if your heart gets broken, you can still love again. The best part for me is this: It’s the first story my child has ever “read” to me. I don’t think she can truly read yet, but this lovely book has a home in her head. And she nails it, word for word, every time. Which is both a little heartbreaking and totally great at the same time.” Jenn Risko, Shelf Awareness

—The New York Times
Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
Little Peep marches along the sidewalk behind his mother hen with his sister chicks, "…tic-toc-tic-toc…" When his sisters hop off the steep curb, fearful Peep just cannot follow. Trembling, unsure, he wants to go home. But the others go on without him. "Mom!!" he cries across a double page. His mother and sisters call encouragingly, "You can do it, Peep!" and "Jump!" Bravely composing himself, he does. His triumph is soon popped, however, like a passing balloon, as he contemplates the next step up. The simple story is visualized in thin black pencil-and-ink lines touched with watercolors and then worked on the computer in a described, complex manner. The minimal text is printed in large, pale, orange type, while yellow offers some background and gives body to the characters. There is also a green balloon that passes by and large areas of white page. The tale offers an amusing, encouraging lesson about "taking a leap." Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2

Peep is a baby chick who follows his mother and sisters along the sidewalk, but when his sisters jump confidently off the edge, Peep hesitates. His reactions run the gamut from nervous to angry to terrified, and when he finally gulps and takes that leap, he's overjoyed at his own prowess. But new challenges always await; for Peep, it's the curb that he must climb next. The illustrations, rendered in pencil, ink, and watercolor, make terrifically effective use of color and white space; Peep's mother and sisters remain sketched in black line, but Peep is always highlighted with a wash of yellow, and in his moment of triumph, the whole page turns yellow with him. Size, font, and placement of the text change throughout to match the emotions of the story. This deceptively simple-looking little offering is a virtual master class in the subtle techniques for effective picture-book creation.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD

Kirkus Reviews
The author/illustrator of Splash! A Little Book About Bouncing Back (2008) offers another diminutive dose of biblio-behavior-modeling. Already anxious about a green balloon that seems to be following along, a small chick comes to a curb from which his mother and sisters have already hopped and gets stuck. After several false starts and much urging he nerves himself at last to make the jump, but his triumph is short-lived; not only does the balloon suddenly burst, but then little Peep is left behind again when everyone else hops up over another curb. The new obstacle looks impossibly high in van Lieshout's very simple yellow-and-black line drawings, and seeing little Peep in an even more challenging new plight isn't likely to give very young children a positive impression. Emotions are writ large here despite the small trim size, but fear-dispellers like Jane Simmons's Come Along, Daisy! (1998) or Martin Waddell's Tiny's Big Adventure, illustrated by John Lawrence (2004), will provide more convincing reassurance. (Picture book. 4-6)

    How insightful for kids- old and young!

    What an insightful story. My children love how the book speaks to the challenges they encounter each day. They can relate to the "little leaps" and the "big leaps" in their lives!

    so simple but SO true

    I know exactly how the wee chick feels. or should I say, he knows exactly how I feel... PEEP is a worthy sibling to BLOOM (piglet) and SPLASH (seal), the stars of Maria van Lieshout's other little books about life -- check them out!
