About the Book:  "This short rhyming story about a night in the life of an armadillo is cozy and soothing. Beauvois's collage-style art, especially the armadillo curled up inside its next, gives Eric Carle vibes. A collection of eight facts on the final page will fascinate kids and grown-ups alike."-- Parents Magazine

"Beauvois, whose elaborately textured, highly dimensional surfaces recognize the paper collage legacy of Eric Carle and Lois Ehlert, creates a series of striking contrasts to the repeating text's simple rhymes. As the mammals appear, ready to "romp and play till the night is done," they're shown in deep jewel tones with patterning reminiscent of a Missoni sweater... tagging along with this self-possessed, graphically stylish critter and chanting its name as it leaps, digs, and dines makes for a memorable outing." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Armadillo Antics pays tribute to the night creatures that roamed the woods outside Martin's and Sampson's] houses in Commerce, Texas. It's this nocturnal aspect that the talented Argentine collagist Beauvois captures so beautifully."--The New York Times
