Horn Book Review

In this nearly wordless book, a woman bakes red heart-shaped cookies to mail to her grandson. It takes almost every mode of transportation imaginable before the package arrives at its destination. In a visually effective touch, some part of each vehicle (e.g., the tractor's exhaust) turns into a heart, tracing the package's progress. Meshon's digital illustrations feature simply drawn characters within cheerfully cluttered landscapes. (c) Copyright 2017. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
