People Don't Bite People

(2) PS Illustrated by Molly Idle. Wheeler's lilting rhymed verse enumerates the reasons not to bite people and suggests alternatives: "It's good to bite a biscuit. / It's good to bite a plum. / It's BAD to bite your brother. / He's not a piece of gum." The humorous text's underlying message about anger management is useful. Simple rounded shapes in saturated hues keep Idle's dynamic colored-pencil illustrations clean, lighthearted, and easy to follow.
