Chick & Chickie Play All Day!
by Claude Ponti
Chick and Chickie love to play in their very own way, whether scaring each other silly or tickling the letter A. As young readers eagerly turn the pages of the story, they'll look forward to spotting all the witty side jokes and hilarious details. The fast-paced and zany narrative by Claude Ponti, one of the world's most beloved children's book authors, will instantly delight early readers and will just as surely turn reading into play.
"[The] first volume featuring the art of Claude Ponti, one of the most respected French authors of children’s literature. Ponti has a background in fine art, and his books contain stunning visuals, often with surrealistic dreamlike elements...The art is all Ponti, but the book itself is re-imagined for a young American audience."
"With simple dialog and clear design features, this Level 1 TOON book will engage new readers with its humor and surprises...New readers will enjoy reading this again and again, noticing details layered within the illustrations. The short sentences, easy sight words, large font size and use of dialog bubbles makes it successful for brand new readers. A winner in this outstanding imprint of graphics for new readers."
"Claude Ponti has come up with an ingenious and hilarious way for kids to learn the sound of the letter "A." Young ones will particularly love Mr. Ponti's ability to personify the 'A' by showing it with a range of emotions."
