Staff Reviews


Willems and Amber Ren created a story about how things are connected because X happened Y was able to happen. These connections and events flow through out the story as you follow the yellow music image as it finally turns to green and later, blue. The illustrations are muted colors, but bold, too, and have the right pops of color where needed. The story leaves you feeling breathless! — Jeanette
