      • content: Pilkey's Caldecott Honor Book is a visual delight. Quietly, the sky goes from night to dawn to morning as the paperboy rises and rides through the neighborhood attending to his duties. Forest Whitaker narrates with the gentle voice the story merits and gives pause, as each spread unfolds, for the listener to take in the scene and the subtle changes of light and darkness before he interjects the story line. Sound effects such as the snapping of the rubber bands around the newspapers and the barks of his dog offer just enough reality to the delicate scene. Listen in and savor the calm before daylight and the dedication of this young boy and his dog. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine

        Starred review from March 4, 1996
        Pilkey (When Cats Dream; the Dragon books) is at his best in this highly atmospheric work. Here his trademark color palette glows quietly under the cover of darkness; violet skies and emerald-shadowed fields predominate until the explosion of a fiery dawn. Early one cold morning a boy and his dog rise to deliver newspapers. In almost reverential silence they eat breakfast, prepare the newspapers, then step out into the chill, leaving sleeping parents and sister inside. Pilkey perfectly captures the thrill of being out early, seeing the world so new and having it all to oneself. Something magical is at work on this most ordinary of paper routes, tangible in the controlled hush of the narrative and in the still, moon-lit landscapes. And, at last, as his family awakens to golden sunlight, the paperboy returns to his bed, prepared to enter another familiar Pilkey world: dreamland. Ages 4-10.
