School Library Journal Review
PreS-Gr 1-At the end of Stileman's Roly-Poly Egg (Tiger Tales, 2011), out hatched Confetti, the hungry chick now featured in this picture book. To each of the various animals she encounters, the famished bird says, "I'm hungry." Each one, including Jemima Giraffe, Zoey Zebra, and Christopher Crocodile, in turn suggests that she try what they like to eat: "Yum!" The ravenous chick samples their food but always responds with "Yuck!" Finally Confetti's mom comes home with a worm, beetle, spider, caterpillar, and stick insect-everything Confetti enjoys. "Yum!" she says, "Yuck!" say all the others. Stileman's signature illustrations are on display again with bold colors, crisp edges, collage effects, and fabulous expressions. The blue bird is sprinkled with multicolored confetti and has expressive, googly eyes and funky banded legs with green kneecaps. There are many whimsical details for observant readers. The simple text is the perfect accompaniment to the artwork. Good for storytimes or individual sharing.-Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH (c) Copyright 2013.

Booklist Review
When Confetti, a little bird, tells Jemima Giraffe that she is really hungry, the giraffe offers some lip-smacking leaves: Yum!' said the giraffe. Yuck!' said Confetti. That exchange sets up the pattern for most of the text and creates a wonderfully memorable phrase for children to call out during storytimes and one-on-one read-aloud sessions. Confetti encounters a zebra, an elephant, a crocodile, and a monkey before her mother offers her a snack of creepy crawlies: Yum!' said Confetti. Yuck!' said all the other animals. In the illustrations Confetti is a round little blue shape splashed with multicolored dots and birdlike only in her two long legs, two enormous eyes, and sharp orange triangle of a beak. A glossy coating on only that part of each illustration makes it gleam when it catches the light. An endearing, comical little character, she shows up well in the brightly colored digital collage illustrations. Fun for reading aloud.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist
