Things are not always what they appear to be in this wordless tale for prereaders about a bee and a bird's semi-epic journey. Magazine illustrator Craig Frazier—the creator of the Stanley books and Hank Finds Inspiration, starring Stanley's fedora-wearing snake Hank—is a master at playing with perspective in his elegantly geometrical computer graphics. Frazier shows us yellow and black stripes, then pulls back to see a bee on a round red table, and pulls back again to show that the "table" is a red bird's head. They're in a tree together—but where is the tree? In a farm truck. And where is the truck? On a cow? Maybe—you'll have to turn the page again to find out.
"This engaging picture book is ideal for a one-on-one lapsit and will be enjoyed by youngsters who are attracted to the brilliant colors and mysterious patterns."—School Library Journal
"Done in Frazier's signature style, the illustrations are filled with simple, bold patterns in primary colors, and everything is thoughtfully abstracted into geometric patterns and shapes."—Kirkus Reviews
