's creations. That inventive font is just right and, by itself, brings a smile to readers'
's collections. --School Library Journal Ever heard of the publisher Mighty Media Kids? Well, if this book is any indication they might be one to watch. The Brothers Hilts did that lovely little book The Insomniacs a couple years ago and then were never heard from again. This book, about a spider that thinks outside the web, makes good use of their skills. Particularly the parts where Seaver must attend to this 'guest'. --A Fuse #8 Production Blog, School Library Journal An artistic arachnid named Seaver uses his spidey senses to spin webs inspired by the stars, but his brothers and sisters are less than impressed with his unusual creations. Author Paul Czajak has woven a tale that not only teaches tots about basic shapes but also reminds us all to embrace our differences. --Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine Using repetition and understated humor, Czajak (the Monster and Me series) reveals that Seaver's innovations are about more than just artistic expression--they also get results. ... It's a stylish and clever ode to the value of trying new things. --Publishers Weekly ...young readers with artistic visions of their own will applaud Seaver's successful paradigm change. A salutary tribute to the benefits of thinking outside the orb. --Kirkus Reviews The simple, bold illustrations add just the right touch to this storybook celebration of dreams, creativity, and independence. --Children's Bookwatch: April 2015, Midwest Book Review This book contains so many of the elements that I look for in good children's literature, including a. a character overcoming an obstacle and being true to themselves, b. the right amount of repetition throughout the story which builds to change in the end, c. GREAT vocabulary words ... The story captures the experience of childhood, when kids are still learning who they are, making the book hyper relatable. --Baby Bookish I love reading this story to my son at night. It gives us a few laughs, reinforces geometry and important life lessons, inspires some great questions and observations, but makes us feel quiet and content at the end. From the dedication to the last sentence, the whole experience of reading this book feels wholly and perfectly complete. --The Picture Book Review From the beginning I was drawn in by the richness of color and poignant sentences that spun a story of whimsy and creative artistry. ... Seaver is a strong character and this story will become a all-time favorite. Czajak and the Brothers Hilts definitely scored a touchdown with this book. --Laticia Overton, contributor for Examiner.com A fun story about being unique and staying true to who you are. --KidsBookshelf What I especially love about the story of Seaver the Weaver is that kids are introduced to various shapes as they read through the adorable story. So great for preschoolers and early elementary readers! --The Simple Moms This book touches on themes of embracing all your differences, being unique and celebrating your individuality, following your dreams. Maybe your own child will look up into the night sky and weave themselves a unique dream of greatness just like Seaver! --Diapers & Daydreams Mr. Czajak has written a beautiful book that makes you feel good about being you. Seaver ultimately shows that being unique instead of perfect is a better option. --This Kid Reviews Books Seaver the Weaver is written by the same author of the Monster & Me(TM) books, and he has woven a wonderful web of words. The illustrations are simple, childlike and beautiful. This is a fun book! --ACS Reader's Haven Reviews The Insomniacs reviews: These illustrations are my favorite kind--offbeat. This is a good choice for that young reader you know who has very much had it with cutesy, pink, glittery picture books. --Kirkus Reviews ... a touch here of quirkiness ... with Tim Burton as master of ceremonies. But that doesn't lessen the kooky ... charms of the magnificent pencil-and-charcoal illustrations by the Brothers Hilts, two real brothers, Ben and Sean, who collaborate as a design and illustration team. --The New York Times The Hilts'
... and the dim ambience challenges human eyesight, yet their inky pared-down palette is enticing. Where most picture books say goodnight, this unusual entry gives the go-ahead to stay up late. --Publishers Weekly
