Review:
Set in Bali, each double-page spread contains a green-and-gold hued, oil on paper, framed illustration of the life cycle of growing rice. Within the frames are poems, which capture the essence of the farming families and the beauty of their environment. Outside of the frames are prose paragraphs that compliment the poems and paintings by giving more information about the rice-growing culture. A highly successful, original format.
