picturebook, nonfiction

Ipcar’s beautiful drawings introduce young readers to the complex relationship humans have with animals, past and present. They started out wild but were tamed over time and many of them “work for man” by providing milk or food.

Ipcar provides beautiful illustrations and uses a Wes Anderson-like palette. Unfortunately, the accompanying text fell flat and is less inspired.

This would be a good title for a child or caretaker of a child who has become interested in where food comes from or why we invite some animals into our homes and not others. I would purchase this for a public library collection.
