Miranda Paul

illustrated by Jason Chin

Drip. Sip. Pour me a cup. Water is water unless. . . it heats up.
Whirl. Swirl. Watch it curl by. Steam is steam unless. . . it cools high.

This spare, poetic picture book follows a group of kids as they move through all the different phases of the water cycle. From rain to fog to snow to mist, talented author Miranda Paul and the always remarkable Jason Chin ( Redwoods, Coral Reefs, Island, Gravity ) combine to create a beautiful and informative journey in this innovative nonfiction picture book that will leave you thirsty for more.

Miranda Paul has written everything from articles on gardening to poems about the life cycle of a butterfly. She lives a short drive from the shoreline in Green Bay, Wisconsin, with her husband, children, and two friendly cats who love taking baths. Are We Pears Yet? is her second book for Roaring Brook Press following the acclaimed Water Is Water . Jason Chin is the author and artist of the award-winning book Redwoods, which Kirkus Reviews called, An inventive eye-opening adventure." His work also includes illustrations for Simon Winchester's The Day the World Exploded . He and his wife Deirdre, also an artist, live in Vermont.
