Synopsis

Jonathan and Martha by Petr Horacek

Classic tale of friendship and love starring two lonely worms

Reviews

A carefully designed combination of collage, background and simple narrative... An elegant, humorous book considering the value of friendship and sharing... In addition to the collage and the vibrant colour, one of the striking aspects of this book is its clever use of framing and space to control the pace of the narrative... Image and narrative work in perfect partnership in this delightful book, which is thoroughly recommended for young children and early readers. -Gill Robins, Books for Keeps Readers... will be drawn in by the growing affection between this pair. -Publishers Weekly Cleverly told... A few pages include die-cut elements that will intrigue viewers while furthering the story. Horacek's typically bold watercolor and crayon illustrations are cheerful and appealing. A great choice for preschool story-times on friendship, sharing, or Valentine's Day (or worms!). -Library Journal This book's beautifully embossed cover and thick paper stock set the tone for rich the illustrations and clever story... Horacek may not be a household name, but he's published over twenty-five children's books and will be a happy discovery for any book-loving child. -San Francisco Book Review
