Review quote

A thunderstorm's "BOOM BOOM" instigates a riot of onomatopoeia knit into narrative. The story opens in an ethnically diverse classroom of children...fearless use of white space underscores the pictures' graphic power and Chodos-Irvine's command of pattern and color. Hear, hear! to this playful romp of a book.--Horn Book, November/December 2014

About Sarvinder Naberhaus

Sarvinder Naberhaus is the author of Boom Boom and Lines. She lives with her family in Ames, Iowa.

Margaret Chodos-Irvine comes from a long line of craftspeople, so she approaches her work as if tailoring a suit or cobbling a shoe. It all has to fit and look beautiful at the same time. To do so, she uses a variety of printmaking techniques to create innovative patterns, vivid colors, and uniquely textured imagery in her work. She has illustrated eleven books for children and has been recognized with starred reviews and other honors, most notably a 2004 Caldecott Honor Award for Ella Sarah Gets Dressed, which she both wrote and illustrated. Margaret lives with her crafty family in Seattle, Washington.
