balancing act

Spot illustration, dedication page, The Day the Cow Sneezed, now back in print thanks to Enchanted Lion Books.

The first reviewfavorable!—courtesy the For Immediate Release (Kids) blog:
I like his habit of calling attention to certain words by putting them in all caps, nearly on every page: POW! WHAMBO! and my personal favorite KA-BLOWIE-BLAM! I also enjoy the language he uses, specific phrases such as "scrunched as flat as corn flakes." It's just plain good reading paired with some spellbinding illustrations that make this a book you won't want to miss.

Thanks what I love about Jim Flora. I've never seen a ballerina on a cow before. Never. Now, thanks to Mr. Flora, I have. Mission Accomplished!
