BOOK REVIEW

MY FRIEND RABBIT by Eric Rohmann
ANIMALS
Released: May 1, 2001

"Young readers and pre-readers will chortle at the silliness of it all while enjoying the sometimes-demanding friendship between these disparately sized chums. (Picture book. 4-7)"
Best known for fluid, superbly realistic oil paintings, Rohmann (Prairie Train, 1999, etc) switches to thick-lined colored woodcuts and a simpler pictorial style for this nearly wordless, engagingly wacky episode. Read full book review >

PUMPKINHEAD by Eric Rohmann
CHILDREN'S
Released: Aug. 12, 2003

"Decidedly offbeat, but Rohmann is plainly having as much fun as readers will as they watch Otho's expression change as he rolls helplessly from one hazard to the next. (Picture book. 7-9)"
Creating thick-lined color woodcuts even simpler than the Caldecott-winning art of My Friend Rabbit (2002), Rohmann follows an unusual lad—or part of him, anyway—on an adventure-filled odyssey. Read full book review >
