Ellis, Carson Du Iz Tak? PICTURE BOOK. Candlewick Press, 2016. $16.99. Content: G.
When two damselflies discover a small shoot beginning to grow, the bugs in the community work together to make it a fun fort for the whole season! Outside forces, like a spider, cause trouble, but only for a while.
Using an imagined language and very detailed pictures, this story is a beautiful example of inference, letting the reader decide what is going on. I especially loved the season passing by watching the plant grow and eventually die. What a beautiful story.
