The Whisper by Pamela Zagarenski

Step inside the pages of a little girl's magical book as she discovers the profound and inspiring notion that we each bring something different to the same story. Two-time Caldecott Honor artist Pamela Zagarenski debuts as an author in this tender picture book about the joy of reading.


* A sumptuously illustrated fable about the magic of storytelling and the power of imagination. School Library Journal, starred review * Surreal, staggering mixed-media paintings make traveling across such beautifully varied and bizarre storyscapes exhilarating. Kirkus, starred review Tiny vignettes of the girl looking at these very images in her own treastured book create the sense that readers are reading it along with her...Zagarenski's artwork is irresistable Publishers Weekly The fanciful combination of opulent imagery and mysterious detail will have children imagining stories of their own. Horn Book Magazine [T]he fabulously layered paintings by two-time Caldecott honor winner Zagarenski are so beautifully constructed and lavishly painted swirling patterns and honeycombs in the background, winsome creatures in the fore that readers can t help but fall for this book.
