Synopsis

Synopsis

Song-like rhyming text invites readers to guess what different components add up to. For example, a secret's part whisper, part keeping mum, and a certain kind of fruit is part peach and part plum (a nectarine). When you're on the equator you're part south and part north, and a certain kind of chair is part back and part forth (a rocking chair). The collage art further expresses the concept that, from stones to sticks, the world is indeed a marvelous mix.

Praise for Tom Slaughter's work in Do You Know Which One's Will Grow?:
ALA Notable Book Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year
"Slaughter's brightly colored cut-paper shapes recall favorites of 50 years ago--a feeling reinforced by this book's fun-to-flip gatefolds. [He] revels in paint-box primaries...for maximum visual charge." --Publishers Weekly
"White space is creatively used and die-cuts steal the show." --School Library Journal, starred
"Slaughter's illustrations bring pop art to mind." --Kirkus Reviews, starred
