Description

"expertly weaving together elements from global creation myths to highlight their surprisingly similar story lines . . . Humankind really is one family, Fleischman suggests." --Publishers Weekly, starred review, on First Light, First Life: A Worldwide Creation Story

"Bright, golden folkloric artwork, swirling with stars and mystery . . . From to great floods to great fires, the world is made new again and Fleischman and Paschkis use words and pictures to show us the commonalities between cultures, condensing them into one fluid telling. . . . Let's hope they continue to elaborate on the stories our diverse world shares." --Booklist, starred review, on First Light, First Life: A Worldwide Creation Story

"In this multicultural mashup, the duo behind Glass Slipper, Gold Sandal: A Worldwide Cinderella (2007) weaves a wonderfully chaotic creation story . . . . this wide canvas amazes. An origin tale as messy as humans can be." --Kirkus Reviews on First Light, First Life: A Worldwide Creation Story

Glass Slipper, Gold Sandal

"Endings don't get any happier than in this global tour de force." -School Library Journal, starred review

Flutter and Hum / Aleteo y Zumbido

"This is a celebration in text and art of words, of language, and of the spaces between and their possibilities. . . . Kids will savor it however they meet it." -The Bulletin, starred review

"Paschkis shows herself to be a sensitive observer of the animal kingdom, as well as of language itself, finding humor, eccentricities, and unexpected connections in both." -Publishers Weekly, starred review
