Lexile measure:
From an author whose work is said to "burgeon with joy," here is a gentle mystery about a silent, gallant lion and a sweetly cheerful bird--two friends who are attracted to each other through the universal language of art. Elisa uses watercolor, gouache, ink, colored pencils, pastels, markers, and crayons to collage this charming and colorful tale. "Illustrated with mixed-media collages so richly colored and textured that readers will want to feel the pages."-- Kirkus Reviews (pointered review) "A sweet and captivating book with gorgeous illustrations. Its story line and artwork both have unusual and unexpected qualities that work together to generate a magical, light mood."-- School Library Journal (starred review) ABA-CBC Children's Books Mean Business and Kansas State Reading Circle
