This charming book about pysanky eggs is a bit like Frederick with chickens. ( )
  amandabock | Dec 10, 2019 |
Living amid a group of hens and one rooster, whom everyone thought was female until he developed into a male, P. Zonka is an artist among hens. Rather than laying eggs like her companions, she would rather study the sky, the clouds, the blueness of it all, and the green glow of the grass. Seeing life in nature and patterns, P. Zonka is happy.

Yet, being nagged by others can be annoying. When she is goaded into trying to lay just one egg, she does so. And, what an egg it is. It is not white, or brown -- it is multicolored, swirling like the clouds and sky, blue and green like the sky and earth.

Noting an inspiration for this book based on the Ukrainian tradition of pysanky, or the decorating of eggs, the author/illustrator weaves a magical tale of independence, or appreciation of nature and fitting in by following examples, yet, while staying true to oneself.

Highly recommended both for the story and the illustrations.

An amusing story about an unusual hen who lays even more unusual eggs. Beautiful, colorful folk art illustrations. ( )

I was excited to see Julie Paschkis' new book for several reasons. First, because I love her books and her art and each new story almost always goes on my favorite pile. Secondly, because eggs are a Big Deal at my library. Thirdly, because I'm planning to feature her in my We Explore Art and Stories series this summer!

This is the story of P. Zonka who doesn't lay eggs. She spends her time looking at the beauties of nature around her. When the other hens finally convince her to try egg-laying, P. Zonka does indeed lay an egg...and what an egg! Like nothing they have every seen before, holding all the colors and patterns she has absorbed from nature.

A brief author's note explains the inspiration for the story in the Ukrainian tradition of pysanky, decorated eggs. I really enjoyed this story; it's a familiar trope (I thought immediately of Lionni's Frederick) but presented in a fresh, new setting with unique, gorgeous artwork. I also appreciated the subtle breaking of gender stereotypes, when one of the hens, Gloria, turns out to be a rooster.

I love the way she adapted her art for this book - as you can see even in the cover, everything is round and swirling, just like a pysanka. The chickens' feathers are squiggles and zigzags, the flowers curve around the page, the eggs are smooth ovals with swift, strong brushstrokes.

My library paints eggs every year, usually right before Easter and I was interested to see how pysanky are created. The process is a bit too complicated for the size and age of my group, but I'm hoping to put up pictures as well as copies of P. Zonka as inspiration before the big event. Of course, my main interest is Julie Paschkis' art, since I'll be featuring her this summer. I read and watched a whole slew of interviews, including discussions of her art techniques, before deciding how to present her art. Paschkis uses several different techniques and her style changes as well, although her vibrant colors and the line of her work is always recognizable. I decided to go with a quilt/collage project, from a recent book called Mooshka which features a lot of quilts and with painting, emphasizing the swirling lines and stylized decorations of P. Zonka by giving the children stencils to draw pictures with which they can then paint in and around, giving them a little more structure. It's going to be a fun summer!

Verdict: This would make a great Easter story, but any time of the year is perfect for celebrating art, imagination, and eggs! Highly recommended.
