I like the patterns (though they get repetitive in spots). And I like the textures.
But I loved the painting. Especially with animals like the pigs – where the messiness conveyed dirt. And the monkeys – where the messiness conveyed chaos.
I never thought I’d say, “such an effective use of browns…” But, there you go.
And the naming of the groups of animals is a fantastic topic for little ears. We all know the basic – a herd of cows, a school of fish. But have you heard of an ostentation of peacocks?
Great little learning book for young readers.
Thanks to NetGalley and Charlesbridge for a copy in return for an honest review.
