Such a charmer about Snoot the Shadow and his Boy. The rich dense blackness of Snoot plays so beautifully against Sydney Smith's loose watercolor washes. The floral end papers alone start the book with a smile. A delight. *Miss Kitty's reviews focus primarily on illustration. For more of her reviews search tag #misskittyspicks*

I picked this one up because of the cover and the title (what is a smoot?) and found it to be very imaginative, inspiring and thought-provoking. Great for multiple reads, since the language is so poetic and there are fun details to be found in the illustrations.

If life is a book, then Smoot the Shadow had been reading the same yawn-colored page for seven and a half years.
