#BookReview: Ellie in Concert By Mike Wu @DisneyHyperion #Giveaway

Welcome to today's last post! We hope you have enjoyed the first day of this amazing week! 
 
Since Ellie saved her home with her wonderful paintings, the zoo is back in business and the animals are more energetic than ever. All except for Lucy the giraffe, who hasn't been able to sleep with all the noise. Determined to help her friend, Ellie tries to tone down the ruckus and organizes the animals into an orchestra. But is it possible to conduct the cacophony of the zoo into beautiful music? Praise for Ellie "[Wu's] visual storytelling, rendered in sweet, throwback-style watercolors, shows creativity and poise. . . . [E]very vignette is expertly framed for a chuckle, an "Awww," or both." -Publishers Weekly
"In his first picture book, Pixar animator Wu creates watercolor illustrations that are reminiscent of classics like Harry the Dirty Dog and Curious George." -Kirkus Reviews
"Wu's dynamic watercolor illustrations enliven the story, their retro/classic feel possessing a distinctive animation quality." -School Library Journal





Mike Wu is the author and illustrator of Ellie, which was selected as NPR's best of 2015. He is also the illustrator of The Oodlethunks series.
