Description

Consisting of idioms (including a few made-up ones), this book presents illustrations that are sweet, funny, thoughtful and beautifully composed. The pictures tell a story about the relationships and emotions that run between and connect humans to other animals. Forceful in language, concept, and color, this book is also big-hearted in how it renders children, animals, their feelings and expressions. Katrin Stangl is a German author, illustrator, graphic designer, and artist. Stangl studied at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig and was a Master's student of the artist Volker Pfuller.

Reviews
"With their strong primary (and secondary) colors, flat shapes enhanced with a panoply of pattern, and dynamic, slightly absurd designs, the book's images of children and animals cavorting are reminiscent of vintage Soviet graphics. [...] Whether the condition is thirsty, stubborn, chatty, or curious, the language is luscious, the scenes command attention, and the conversational possibilities are myriad. [...] A celebration of expression--in both senses of the word." Kirkus Reviews "The saturated crayon-box colors of Stangl's prints are downright eye-popping, while the everyday familiarity of the 26 scenes create natural lead-ins for discussion of the emotions, activities, and animals pictured." Publishers Weekly "An explosion of colorful vitality. The simple text enunciates a list of animal qualities that children will easily identify with, and the full page illustrations will easily delight adults too. The book's vibrant chromatic quality was achieved thanks to a printing process using four different pantone colors." Animalarium "Forceful in language, concept, and color, this book is also big-hearted in how it renders children, animals, their feelings and expressions." Rizzoli Bookstore
