Editorial Reviews

Gr. 1. Popcorn is an energetic subject, and Everitt, with her cheeky, New Wave artistic style, is just the right illustrator for this simple yet lively text. Step by step, a young girl and her friends (including a very large pink rabbit) make popcorn: "Popcorn. Popcorn. / Put it in a pot. / Popcorn. Popcorn. / Get the pot hot." By the last spread, it's popcorn everywhere, popping across the pages--" catch it if you can." The bordered pictures against expanses of white show off their sassy sensibility in hot purples, pinks, green, and blues. This Green Light Reader is just what an easy-reader should be.
