Summary
From a heavyweight author-and-illustrator duo comes a delicious tongue twister of a picture book that features a little round greyhound and a little round groundhog. With very spare, incredibly lively language, this is an entertaining read-aloud, with two amazing-and oh-so-adorable-characters at its heart. a When a greyhound meets a groundhog, wordplay and crazy antics ensue. The two animals, much like kids, work themselves into a frenzy as they whirl around and around one another. ( Around, round hound. Around, greyhound. ) The pace picks up ( Around and around and astound and astound ), until they ultimately wear themselves out. a oJenkins's masterful text is deceptively simple.o -NPRon Toys Meet Snow by Emily Jenkins a oAppelhans, whose career up to now has been in animated films such as Coraline, is a revelation.o - Booklist, Starred, on Sparky!, illustrated by Chris Appelhans a oAppelhans makes an auspicious picture book debut with strikingly beautiful watercolor and pencil illustrations. His style, reminiscent of Jon Klassen's, incorporates a muted color palette, but with a slightly softer, rounder quality, while also weaving in visual deadpan humor.o - The Horn Book
