DESCRIPTION:

A child's epic adventure is depicted brilliantly in this elegant and visually stunning collaboration between a mother and son. The poet's and artist's visions come together seamlessly, enhancing each, transcending both to create a perfect picture book.. The poet--Nina Payne--conjures the world in all its symmetry and beauty, using only fifty-six common nouns that every child knows. The artist--Adam Payne---tells the story of a child's discovery of creation in exquisite cut-paper collage

The child's journey is archetypal, flowing freely into fantasy (e.g., the quartet of "bear bird fish snake" joins the girl at the table for "fork plate knife spoon") and back into the safety of home (in the end, the girl rushes back toward her house, where her family waits outside: "mother father son daughter").

Each line has four words: Fork Plate Knife Spoon -- Morning Evening Midnight Moon. The pictures tell a story of their own, they do not "illustrate" the poem.

The poem uses simple words in fun rhythms while the story is told through the beautiful illustrations. It's a tale of a young girl setting off on an adventure through the world - she crosses a bridge, builds a house, meets a bear, crosses an ocean and eventually makes her way back home to her loving family. It's a pleasure to read aloud and to find the details in the pictures. I bought copies for all my favorite kids..
