Description

A red-headed girl and her bunny friend bounce together on a trampoline-bouncing and bouncing, till the girl bounces right off into the sky. Bunny follows, springing into fluffy white clouds, flying behind a red airplane among a flock of geese, floating ever higher on a hot-air balloon, soaring across a rainbow, jetting into space, before finally catching a ride on a shooting star back down to earth-and into his friend's waiting arms. Beautiful and kid-friendly collage brings to life this charming wordless flight of fancy.

Critic Reviews

“Spring Hare : "Backyard trampoline jumpers sometimes feel as though they can bounce right up into the sky, and that's just what happens in Yelchin's wordless fantasy. . . The action ricochets into outer space and back like a magnificent bungee jump, and the girl's presence offers reassurance throughout." Publishers Weekly, starred review "Yelchin's collage illustrations constantly change perspective and point of view, and he uses energetic, rich tones of yellows, greens, blues, reds, and oranges to communicate movement and buoyancy, which playfully capture the exuberant feelings new friendship, the joy of movement, and the possibilities of imagination." -- Booklist Crybaby: "Yelchin's mixed-media illustrations are fun and full of life" --School Library Journal Breaking Stalin's Nose : Newbery Honor Book "Mr. Yelchin has compressed into two days of events an entire epoch, giving young readers a glimpse of the precariousness of life in a capricious yet ever-watchful totalitarian state ." --The Wall Street Journal”
