Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The contrast of muted and bright colors allows youngsters to focus on what or who is really important in the story. . . . Children will identify with Balzo's plight, while adults can learn an important lesson about patience and tolerance." —School Library Journal (January 1, 2012)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—How boring it is to be stuck in a store and told "DON'T TOUCH!" when the adults surrounding you are touching and grabbing at everything in sight. What's a boy to do? Balzo uses his imagination to make the excursion more bearable, which gets him into trouble—big trouble. He imagines himself transformed into a caterpillar that slides along the floors of a store before becoming a butterfly that flies. His creativity allows readers to see the inner working of a child confronted with the rules of adults. The contrast of muted and bright colors allows youngsters to focus on what or who is really important in the story. The text and surrealistic illustrations work harmoniously to further create this contrast in both worlds. Children will identify with Balzo's plight, while adults can learn an important lesson about patience and tolerance.—Verónica Corral, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, NC
