      Description

      A new collection of poetry for kids from Coretta Scott King Book Award winner Eloise Greenfield!

      Thinker isn't just an average puppy—he's a poet. So is his owner, Jace. Together, they turn the world around them into verse.

      There's just one problem: Thinker has to keep quiet in public, and he can't go to school with Jace. That is, until Pets' Day. But when Thinker is allowed into the classroom at last, he finds it hard to keep his true identity a secret.

      Praise for Thinker:
      "Coretta Scott King Award-winner Greenfield sensitively conveys Jace's anxiety about being perceived as different, and his realization that being true to one's self is the best bet—for kids and dog poets, too."—Publishers Weekly
      A Kate Greenaway Medal nominee

      "In this charming book of linked poems - the story of a pup who speaks, but only in verse - the distinguished children's poet Greenfield glides gracefully between rhyme, free verse, haiku and rap. A boy named Jace becomes the dog's owner. He names him Thinker ("I'm deep and I'm a poet," the dog warns. "A cute name's not O.K.") and the two have back-and-forth chats about life. On every page, Abdollahi's collaged illustrations bring the characters to life with a soulful flair." - The New York Times
      "Abdollahi's bright collages of handmade and hand-colored paper show Thinker with his joyful, brown-skinned family, in a welcome addition to the too-small canon of lighthearted animal fantasy (and poetry) featuring children of color." - Horn Book Magazine
      "Greenfield brings her vast experience to this delightful piece of poetic whimsy that celebrates the powers of poetry, family, and friendship. The light and liveliness of the pictures are eye-catching and appealing, and the color palette is warm and rich, further enhancing the poetry. A good way to introduce the youngest readers to extended narratives in verse. " - Kirkus Reviews
      "Abdollahi illustrates in evocative collage using handmade paper, capturing the feel of Jace's bustling community. Coretta Scott King Award-winner Greenfield sensitively conveys Jace's anxiety about being perceived as different, and his realization that being true to one's self is the best bet-for kids and dog poets, too." - Publishers Weekly
      "should encourage young wordsmiths" - Booklist

      Reviews
      "This cheerful title introduces a rosy-cheeked, eye-lashed 'Queen of the Night Sky,' lonely after 4.5 billion years of silvery bright solitude. Elisa Paganelli's textured digital artwork extends the winsome story with a cozy version of space, a soothing, star-speckled blue rather than bottomless black, and watched over by the eager, anthropomorphized "queen," who cheers as the Eagle lands right between her eyes." - The New York Times
      "This is a story for young readers. It anthropomorphizes the moon, making her a character in the tale of the lunar landing. It's remarkably sweet, and kids ages 2 to 5 will love it.
      " - Romper
      "Set apart by its unusual point of view... Appended notes on the moon, NASA, spacesuits, and the Saturn V rocket also help to give the historic mission some background." - Kirkus Reviews
      "In this playful book, the anthropomorphized moon watches humans from afar and eagerly notes as they invent the first airplane, build rockets and prepare to take the first tentative steps on her surface. Through text and informative back matter, young readers learn fascinating facts about the moon, astronauts and the space program.
      " - Washington Parent
      "For the littlest sky-watcher "The Moon's First Friends" by Susanna Leonard Hill, illustrated by Elisa Paganelli, gives the orb a certain friendliness. Through the centuries, as this tale goes, the moon observed everything that happened on Earth, occasionally razzle-dazzling humans until finally, she had visitors! This is a cute story and, for curious 3-to-5-year-olds, there's a nice afterword you can read, too.
      " - Bookworm Sez
      "A cute story [that] manages to deliver some facts (including how solar eclipses work!) seamlessly within the narrative.
      " - Panetary.org
      "In Paganelli's friendly illustrations, the moon is an anthropomorphic, bright-eyed blue sphere with rosy cheeks who communicates with the changing world throughout history." - Publishers Weekly
