Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1- These books, illustrated in a style evocative of Japanese anime, explore relationships between words through bright pictures and die cuts in the pages. Quack Shack covers the "ack," "ick," and "ock" families ("locks rock" and "chick licks...") while Wet Pet looks at words in the "et," "ed," and "am" word families ("bed sled" and "ram on jam"). Thus, "jet" becomes "pet" when the cutout page is turned. Young connoisseurs of Hello Kitty and caregivers who want extremely simple readers will gravitate to these cheery titles. The fragile pages will probably not hold up with extended use, so be prepared to order multiple copies if there's a high demand for this type of book.-Farida S. Dowler, Mercer Island Library, WA
