Kirkus Reviews

Both this David Bowie-themed celebration of adjectives and its companion volume, Baby KISS: A Book About Colors, are visual delights, bursting with bright hues and simple but stylized renderings of the critical iconography of both acts.... With its companion, fun for music-loving tots whose grown-ups like these artists.

Publishers Weekly

Iconoclastic musical artist David Bowie becomes a goggle-eyed avatar of adorableness in this description-oriented board book, part of the Baby Rocker series. Each spread features a word and adjective pair on the left-hand page, facing a bright Pintachan illustration of the item in simplified geometric shapes and a saturated rainbow palette. As the pages turn, specific adjectives--"spiky hair," "shiny lightning bolt"--give way to more generic pairings--"loud guitar," "tall microphone." True Bowie fans may be dismayed to see their hero depicted with two matching aqua eyes--their mismatch was part of his unmistakable look--but adults who eschew more traditional preschool fare may enjoy passing on their sensibilities distilled into a toddler-friendly package. Also available: Baby Kiss: A Book About Colors. Ages up to 3. (Sept.)
