Reviews

AWARDS and RECOGNITIONSPaterson Prize Honor Book (2014)Society of Illustrators, -The Original Art- annual exhibition (2013) Silver Medal2013 IndieFab Awards Silver Winner in Picture BooksPublishers Weekly (STARRED review)-This simple, graceful, and even majestic meditation reflects on the beauty and strength of familiar animals. . . . With poetic language and paintings that carry something close to the impact of icons, Zoboli and Mulazzani offer an attitude of reverence for the natural world.- Booklist (STARRED review) -Books inviting children to imagine themselves as animals are ubiquitous and a playful way to encourage imagination, but most don't have the scope of this beautiful Italian import. There is a dignified eloquence at work here, and the narrator's wishes are not merely the desire of a child to be like an animal, but a longing for a tangible connection to an often intangible universe. . . . This is a book of big ideas, sparingly told, and full of wonder.- AWARDS and RECOGNITIONSPaterson Prize Honor Book (2014)Society of Illustrators,
