Written, Illustrated by Anne Belov
Pre-School - Grade 2
Author-illustrator Anne Belov imagines a magical world in Pandamorphosis to delight children and captivate adults who share this tale with their young readers.
Pandamorphosis fascinates me because of its total absence of text. Instead of words, children are immersed in beautiful illustrations that spin a whimsical tale of magic and mischief. One moonlit night, a sleeping child's cat makes a wish, and the pet is a magically transformed into a panda. The girl's beloved stuffy panda also comes to life, and the pandas have a romp around the house as the child dreams, blissfully unaware of the mayhem happening around her. Is it real? Is it a dream? Young readers must decide.
Belov's beautiful drawings are standalone works of art in themselves. Bathed in hazy, soft colors, they paint a tale of magic and mischief. Details on each page draw young readers into the tale and engage them in its playfulness. Best of all, Belov's illustrations create a story line for children to discover and add their own unique interpretations.
I highly recommend this beautiful book for children who are toddlers through grade 2. Educators will weave this book into their literacy and language development curricula while Pandamorphosis will also delight children and adults with its art and enchanting story.
I was provided with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
