"'Have you ever seen a flower?' a voice asks, then presses further: 'I mean?really...// seen a flower?'. . . The persistent questioning is matched by the visual intensity of the spreads, colored-pencil drawings bursting with energy, angular shapes in rainbow hues that are bounded by crisp-edged negative space. . . . With assurance and passion in his solo debut, Harris (A Polar Bear in the Snow) connects readers to the stirrings of life in all its forms."-Publishers Weekly, starred review
