    Publisher:   Blue Apple Books (2013, May 14th).

    Song-like rhyming text invites readers to guess what different components add up to. For example, a secret's part whisper, part keeping mum, and a certain kind of fruit is part peach and part plum (a nectarine). When you're on the equator you're part south and part north, and a certain kind of chair is part back and part forth (a rocking chair). The collage art further expresses the concept that, from stones to sticks, the world is indeed a marvelous mix. more
