Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Ehlert(Scraps) gives readers a mole's-eye-view of the subterranean life in thismultilayered exploration of the natural world. The cheeky narrator a graycut-paper mole with giant purple claws and a furry outline created with pinkingshears makes its entrance via die-cut circles in the book's cover and firstpage ( See this hole? I dug it. I'm a mole ). From there, it digsthrough an elaborate series of tunnels, moving from the lawn to a neatlyplanted vegetable garden; along the way, the mole passes numerous brightlycolored worms squiggling around in the mottled dirt, but seeks out moredelectable fare ( Eating earthworms is OK, but not every day ).Ehlert's cut-paper critters and objects come together in a harmonious symphonyof textures, shapes, and rich colors (the mole tunnels are a vibrant red, contrasting starkly with the dark, fibrous paper used for the dirt), and themole's narration reads like a series of excited, extemporaneous rhymes. Endpages that identify and briefly discuss various garden-variety bugs concludethis energetic book on an educational note.--Publisher's Weekly September 28, 2015
