I be boy. All bliss boy. All fine beat. All beau boy. Beautiful. Famed author bell hooks brings us a tight, exuberant story that captures the essence and energy of what it means to be a boy. Chris Raschka's soulful illustrations buzz with a force that is the perfect match for these powerful words. Praise for Be Boy Buzz: *"This spare, poetic riff on young manhood plumbs the delights and contradictions of what it means to be a boy. . . . Hooks's rhythmic blend of brevity and eloquence launches Raschka's trademark visual haiku. . . . This life-affirming book will have readers as much 'in love with being a boy' as are its own utterly irresistible characters." 
Publishers Weekly, starred review 

 

"[The] poetry is rhythmic and rolling, each word finessed to fit the pulse of [hooks's] verse. The lilt of the language is contagious, begging to be read aloud. . . . Raschka's mixed media illustrations are an energetic dream. . . . Buy it for the boys and all those who love them." 
Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books

 

"[A] pleasing and affirmative visual and textual interpretation of what it means to be a little boy: be boy buzz, indeed."
