KIRKUS REVIEW

In a 12-line poem that continues in the pattern set in the eponymous first two lines, Blos moves from the literal to the less obvious--either conceptual or poetic--concluding with ""A thought, a poem./A house, a home!"" A page turn between the first and second half of each line turns the verse into an amusing guessing game, especially with the addition of Poppers vibrant, freely rendered watercolors. This would make an attractive participatory interlude at storytime.
