40653149. sx318 Title: A Way with Wild Things

Author: Larissa Theule

Illustrator: Sara Palacios

Book Summary:

Poppy comes alive in nature. She knows everything about the flora and fauna. However, being social with people can be hard. Using camouflage like her friends in nature, Poppy tries to blend in at parties and not let anyone notice her. When a friend from nature visits a party, Poppy finds her way out of hiding and begins investigating.

Caldecott Considerations:

I love the personality of the characters in this book. The illustrations create these realistic people I could imagine meeting in real life. The depth of color is gorgeous. The illustrator is able to blend Poppy into her surroundings forcing readers to lean in further and surrounds them with the illustrations. This book is a visual delight.
