The Books


by Leo Lionni

One Potato Review

The wages (and rationalizations) of a poet, made entirely accessible by that unassuming magpie, Leo Lionni. Frederick loafs around exasperating his industrious colleagues, but when winter grows too long and they have depleted their material provisions and stories of “foolish foxes and silly cats,” Frederick is able to finally summon the fruits of his bohemian futzing – to essential and empowering use. Here is the blessing of recollection – of blue periwinkles and the golden glow of the sun – and the talent to pass it around. Suitable to read aloud to even the busiest of two year old beavers.
