Review:
“The beasts are having a feast,” this beautifully crafted picture book announces, and the rapt small listener learns exactly what each beast contributes to this international, inter-species gala: i.e. “Bears bring pears”; “Mosquitoes bring burritos”; “Fishes bring knishes”, etc. Caldecott Medal-winning illustrator Blair Lent provides inventive graphics made of his own handmade, brightly-colored papers, with printed patterns imposed that enliven the overall effect. By the time the “armadillos bring some pillows” we are all ready for a nap. It’s inspired nonsense for youngest listeners.
