Dear Linda Newbery and Catherine Rayner,

PosyI love Posy!  You’ve accomplished my favorite kind of picturebook–simple, minimalist text matched with big, visually appealing illustrations.  The rhymes are very natural and have a great flow–that’s always a danger with rhyming picturebooks, especially for young readers, there’s a tendency to make the rhymes either too singsong-simple or too clever.  The purposefully messy, kinetic lines of the art and the understated color palette go along with the smooth writing beautifully.  Posy is adorable, and this book is a five-star triumph.

Love,

apple
