“Ono­matopoeia is con­veyed in engag­ing typog­ra­phy, while Shklovsky con­tributes sweet­ly expres­sive, intri­cate water­col­or and pen­cil illus­tra­tions in a soft palette, employ­ing cap­ti­vat­ing angles and dynam­ic spreads to hold read­ers’ atten­tion. This illu­mi­nat­ing tale simul­ta­ne­ous­ly serves as a primer on the loon and a sat­is­fy­ing, well-paced chron­i­cle of progress.”
