Du Iz Tak?

author/illustrator: Carson Ellis

Du iz tak? What is that? As a tiny shoot unfurls, two damselflies peer at it in wonder. When the plant grows and sprouts leaves, some young beetles arrive to gander, and soon—with the help of a pill bug named Icky—they wrangle a ladder and build a tree fort. But this is the wild world, after all, and something is waiting to swoop down—booby voobeck!—only to be carried off in turn. Told in an invented language, this droll 2017 Caldecott Honor Book from Carson Ellis invites readers to imagine the dramatic possibilities to be found in even the humblest backyard. Su!

“Certain to ignite readers’ interest and imaginings. . . . Following the minute changes as the pages turn is to watch growth, transformation, death, and rebirth presented as enthralling spectacle.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
