Praise
"Ms. Kleven creates glowing collages with a rich variety of textures, including scraps of newsprint in different languages, origami paper, hair and yarn glued onto bright watercolor backgrounds. The night scenes are wonderfully luminous, and the aerial views are chock-full of details that will draw children in close."
From the Publisher
Annotation A breeze blows away a paper doll before the girl making her has given her hair. The doll drifts through a series of adventures during which she acquires various kinds of hair, and eventually returns to the girl.
Editors Note A gust of wind sends a paper princess flying. "Wait! I didn't finish you," cries the little girl who made her. "I'll finish myself," calls the princess, and the wind carries her away, over a meadow and a river, to a carnival and a town, until finally she finds her way home. Elisa Kleven's "mixed-media collages are a kaleidoscope of color and activity, encompassing a vast, multiracial cast of happy people" (Publishers Weekly). "The best book yet from this talented author/illustrator, and one that children will love." -- School Library Journal, starred review Elisa Kleven's award-winning picture books include her own Ernst and The Lion and the Little Red Bird, the illustrations for Abuela, by Arthur Dorros, and her most recent book for Dutton, The Puddle Pail. She lives near San Francisco, California.
