Review
  • Horacek’s lovely introduction to animal noises features personable portraits of seven barnyard animals. There’s the hint of a smile penciled on the face of a handsome salmon-colored pig (“Oink, oink says the pig”), while a farm dog bounds across its spread, bushy tail wagging (“Woof, woof says the dog”). Each page is die-cut in a soft curve to be smaller than the one preceding, creating a dimensional “body” for a cow on the final page, splattered with black paint and staring wide-eyed at readers with its tongue comically lolling out of its mouth. Up to age 3. (June) --Staff (Reviewed June 2, 2014) (Publishers Weekly, vol 261, issue 22, p)
  • This simple book of animal sounds concludes with a happy surprise.Each spread pictures a single animal against a divided background—black and white on the left and a solid vibrant hue—green, blue, yellow or red—on the right. The text is simple: “HEE-HAW, HEE-HAW says the donkey,” “BAA, BAA says the sheep” and likewise for the pig, cat and goose. Each scallop-edged, right-hand page is a little shorter than the one preceding it, leading to a surprise on the final spread. The black-and-white left-hand pages layer atop one another to form the body of a Holstein cow who says “MOO” as she sticks out her bright pink tongue. The mixed-media illustrations are cheery and child-friendly. The bold, contrasting colors and the simplicity and brevity of the text make this a great choice for infants and toddlers. A small quibble: The front cover prominently features the text: “lift the flaps,” which is misleading considering there are no actual flaps to be lifted; the final effect is built simply by turning the pages in typical fashion.A short and satisfying spin around the barnyard for babies.
