In a lively board book, multi-award-winning author-illustrator Petr Horác? ek’s vibrant illustrations depict charming animals that babies will love — along with a fun novelty surprise.

Editorial Reviews

Its design and illustrations ... are something special. Between the covers, each cardboard page has a different width from its companions, with a pleasantly wavy edge that’s easy for little hands to turn. Horacek ... brings a distinctive, artistic eye to his portraits of animals, using what look to be layers of pastel and paint to give them an intriguing, almost sculptural, heft and texture.
—The New York Times

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 short and satisfying spin around the barnyard for babies.
—Kirkus Reviews

Horacek’s lovely introduction to animal noises features personable portraits of seven barnyard animals. ... 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.
—Publishers Weekly
