Look at this book! Every word contains the letter pair OO. Two siblings take a trip to the zoo and see kangaroos, cockatoos, and more. Plus there are balloons and scoops of ice cream. Cool. Full-color illustrations were created using hand-cut rubber stamps, stencils, BLO pens, and additional pencil line work, all composited digitally.

After an exciting trip, they return home and enjoy their bedtime routine. The seemingly unexceptional plot is enlivened via clever word choices and illustrations that make this story a standout. A single word (food, zoom, baboon) appears on each graphically interesting page, incorporating its double “o” into the art. At first glance, the words might seem random but the ingenious story line becomes clear after just a few pages. Fresh and bold mixed media artwork includes rubber stamps, stencils, and BLO pens, and often blends the hand-lettered text in assorted font with the illustrations. Laid out on expansive light backgrounds, the artwork invites young readers to look and look again. VERDICT Playful fun, this engaging read-aloud will be welcome in most collections.–Yelena Voysey, formerly at Pickering Educational Library, Boston University, Student Library Journal

The text of this clever and eye-catching picture book consists solely of words containing double os.

Pictures follow two siblings through a day as they wake up to look at the rising sun, go on an outing to the zoo (where they see baboons, buy some balloons, and drool over a few scoops of ice cream), then head home to a bedtime routine of bathroom, shampoo, book, and goodnight. Each double-o word is incorporated into the art in a hand-lettered text, so that the os in the word food at breakfast are represented by round fried eggs; in zoom, as mom drives the kids to the zoo, by the tires on their car; in shampoo, by two soap bubbles, etc.; kid-pleasingly, the os in bathroom are toilet-paper rolls. The art, “hand-cut rubber stamps, stencils, BLO pens, and additional pencil line work, all composed digitally,” is colorful, lively, and sometimes silly (a kangaroo in the zoo, for instance, wears boxing gloves—and of course the two gloves form the os in the word kangaroo). With its satisfying narrative arc and imaginative wordplay, this picture book is pretty cool. -Martha V. Parravano, Horn Book
