Inch by Inch


Product Description:

Leo Lionni, an internationally known designer, illustrator, and graphic artist, was born in Holland and lived in Italy until he came to the United States in 1939. He was the recipient of the 1984 American Institute of Graphic Arts Gold Medal and was honoured posthumously in 2007 with the Society of Illustrators' Lifetime Achievement Award. His picture books are distinguished by their enduring moral themes, graphic simplicity and brilliant use of collage, and include four Caldecott Honour Books: Inch by Inch, Frederick, Swimmy, and Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse. Hailed as "a master of the simple fable" by the Chicago Tribune, he died in 1999 at the age of 89.. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Product Details


PreS-Gr 1-Leo Lionni's 1961 Caldecott Honor Book (HarperCollins, pap. 1995) has finally been brought to the screen in this lively animated film. As the story begins, the inchworm wiggles through some grass blades; the visual depth is remarkable. In order to avoid being eaten, the little worm measures a robin's tail, a flamingo's neck, and more. The hummingbird is particularly breathtaking in the way its iridescent wings are shown rapidly flapping. In the end, the intrepid hero faces the dilemma of how to measure a nightingale's song, but finds an imaginative solution to the problem. Lionni's illustrations are lovely, and the story teaches measurement in a fun way. Ron McLarty narrates with just the right touch of whimsy, and lively orchestral music plays in the background. A good choice for the preschool crowd.-B. Allison Gray, John Jermain Memorial Library, Sag Harbor, NY Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
