Publishers Weekly

“The whole world was white,” writes Berger in this hushed vision of a snowy day. Berger’s collages, however, are no simple “white”: her hilly snowscapes are crafted from lined paper, handwritten ledgers, and typewritten pages in creamy off-whites and pale yellows. Berger follows the activities of various children with birdlike faces, layered in winter plaids, before they “go home to warm hugs and dry clothes and steaming hot chocolate.” The pared-down prose both suggests the quiet stillness of a winter afternoon and lends itself to thoughtful consideration of each spread. Lovely. Ages 4–8. Agent: Brenda Bowen, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. (Nov.) 2012 Reed Business Information

Editorial Reviews

“Lovely.”
Praise for THE LITTLE YELLOW LEAF: “The handsomely designed collage compositions are showstoppers”
Praise for THE LITTLE YELLOW LEAF: “Notebook paper brings schoolwork to mind, but with scissors Berger transforms the stuff of homework into art.”
