Uno's Garden {PiBoIdMo 2013 Reading}

In answer to a challenge put out by Tracey M. Cox, I am making my way through some of my family's favorite picture books. Today we re-read...

by Graeme Base

Art collides with math and a message about the environmental effect of urban sprawl on different creatures in this gorgeous book by Graeme Base. My boys always giggled about the fanciful names for Base's animals: the Moopaloops, the Lumpybums, and - of course - the Snortlepig. While the demise of the animals is horrifyingly real, Base leaves the reader with hope that perhaps...things will get better.
