Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Hopgood interprets this beloved ballad, written by Thiele and Weiss and made famous by Louis Armstrong. His colorful mixed-media collages present a hopeful world, filled with summery trees, sunny blue skies, and pastoral scenes from around the globe. The protagonist is an unnamed child who tours the world on foot, by hot-air balloon, astride an elephant, and submerged under the sea. Sometimes he encounters other diverse children, but mostly he is alone with nature. Additionally, musical notes float across the spreads, signaling the text's musical origins. Although Hopgood appends the words to this song and a note about Armstrong's connection to it, no music or recording is included here. Libraries already using Ashley Bryan's What A Wonderful World (1995) which brings Armstrong into the text as children put on a puppet show for him may want to stick with it, but Hopgood's version makes an upbeat story hour selection, especially when paired with an Armstrong recording.--Weisman, Kay Copyright 2015 Booklist"
