Armadillo Antics

Review "Armadillo Antics provides fascinating information. Told in verse, the story starts as the full moon rises and most creatures head off to sleep. The armadillo, however, is freshly awake and ready to frolic all night long." -Arizona Republic "Armadillo Antics is a fun introduction for beginning readers to an animal that is often derided as being a bit out of step with the modern world. The simple poetic text uses rhyme to describe many interesting facts about the armadillo, and Nathalie Beauvois's expressive collage illustrations add humor and beauty to a fitting tribute to a species that is deserving of much more respect than it often receives. Picture books that encourage young readers' affection toward the natural world and its creatures are invaluable, and Armadillo Antics is a nice addition to this genre. The eight armadillo facts at the end of the book are comically illustrated, and encourage exploration into more detailed study." -Janell Cannon, Award-Winning, New York Times Bestselling Author of Stellaluna "Armadillo Antics is a wonderful rhythmic dance of color, collage and energy. Rich with vibrant color and texture, this book radiates joy as the armadillo blazes through its adventurous night only to land safely at his underground home where it can rest and dream." -Bryan Collier, Caldecott Medalist and Coretta Scott King Award-Winning Illustrator "Armadillo Antics pays tribute to the night creatures that roamed the woods outside [Martin's and Sampson's] houses in Commerce, Texas. It's this nocturnal aspect that the talented Argentine collagist Beauvois captures so beautifully. While highly influenced by the painted, cut-paper style of Eric Carle, Beauvois's brush strokes are more rough-hewn, her textures more raised, her backgrounds darker. And sometimes - yes, it's true - she intentionally strays outside the lines."-The New York Times "Armadillo Antics takes us through a night in the life of the armadillo, with wonderful lyrical rhyming text and gorgeous textured colorful collage art. This mysterious creature comes to life as an absolute symphony of words, and images dance across the pages. Magnificent!" -Laura Vaccaro Seeger, Caldecott-Winning, New York Times Bestselling Author and Illustrator "A wonderfully musical nighttime romp with stunning illustrations." -Matt de la Pe
