Tails Chasing Tails by Matthew PorterA tiger chases a bear, who chases a pig, who chases a fox and so on in this charming and colourful new board book by indie artist star Matthew Porter.
Against wood-grained backgrounds of yellow, blue and green, stylized animals chase one another's tails from page to page. The fun in 'Tails Chasing Tails
's being pursued from just its hindquarters; when you turn the page, the face and front legs of the creature appear. The exception is the elephant (usually everyone's favorite) that begins and ends the book. The animals'
-shaped eyes and Matthew Porter's milky, opaque colors give the simple pictures an Indian inflection. The New York Times
'short, brown tail'
--while entirely friendly and appealing--also have a static, almost totemic quality, as though the chase were part of a larger folktale. Publishers Weekly
Aspiring authors can all learn a thing or two from Matthew Porter. He's produced an armful of beloved toddler books, including ABC and Count the Birdies.
We love Porter's hip, bright board books... Porter's art is filled with wide-eyed animals that he paints on wood panels.
