Product description


“Waiting further cements Henkes’s place alongside picture book legends like Margaret Wise Brown, Crockett Johnson, and Ruth Krauss, through his lyrical text, uncluttered yet wondrously expressive illustrations, and utmost respect for the emotional life of young children.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“The story is all about quietly filling in the gaps...the protagonists’ contentment with just waiting is contagious. Waiting as a joyful activity in itself is almost never celebrated; this Zen-like meditation might win some converts.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Henkes provides no deep meanings and sends no messages; he’s just showing what waiting can be like. Perhaps listeners will find a model for making long waits seem less tiresome: be still and notice the world around you.” (Horn Book (starred review))

“Enigmatic, lovely . . . intriguing and inimitable.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Quiet yet evocative, this is a lovely melding of artwork, design, and text... Little ones, to whom each experience is new, will know what it’s like to dream and wait.” (Booklist (starred review))

“Kevin Henkes, who both illustrates and writes with a gentle and elegant style, creates an appealing cast of toys to get at the concept of waiting-a tough one to convey to a child. …Calming in a way that emphasizes the theme of patience.” (New York Times Book Review, Editor’s Choice)

“In his illustrations, Mr. Henkes uses soft nursery shades of pink, greenish-blue and chocolate brown on a creamy background to convey a feeling of such safety and contentment as to beguile even the most irritable adult tooth-gnasher.” (Wall Street Journal)

“With economy, humor and warmth, Waiting quietly bridges reality and imagination, indoors and out, constancy and change, now and what comes next.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

“Kevin Henkes is the stealthiest master of kids’ lit around.” (Boston Globe)

“Waiting is a microcosm: five sentient toys on a windowsill. The picture book is visual elegant and nostalgic…The design, illustrations, and text of Waiting are exquisitely choreographed, each decision made with great care. …They are waiting, just waiting. And something’s bound to happen.” (Shelf Awareness) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Look at the owl and the pig and the bear and the puppy and the rabbit.

What do you think they’re waiting for? Something wonderful? A visitor? A surprise? Maybe they’re waiting for you!

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
