We Go Together!: A Curious Selection of Affectionate Verse (Hardcover)
This curious collection of verses to friendship and love is charming and playful with its playful rhyme and sweet illustrations. Calef has a way of seeing affection in all its moments. He is the award-winning author and illustrator of Polkabats and Octopus Slacks:14 Stories, among other books. Using engaging and nonsensical characters, Brown crafts narrative story-poems with a jazzy beat. Give this book to a cherished friend!— From Robin Recommends
In Calef Brown's poem We Go Together, he jubilantly decrees: We go together / like fingers and thumbs. / Basses and drums. / Pastries and crumbs. In You Are Two (Kiwis), he muses, I am quite frequently, / reminded by thee / of a kiwi. / Either kind. Yes, silliness and sentimentality have free rein in this curious selection of childlike poems about love and friendship, each accompanied by an equally absurd, stylized acrylic painting. Like Sandol Stoddard's I Like You, We Go Together this book makes an offbeat Valentine's gift for anyone with a good sense of humor and a penchant for wordplay.
