    I be boy. All bliss boy. All fine beat. All beau boy. Beautiful.
    Famed author bell hooks brings us a tight, exuberant story that captures the essence and energy of what it means to be a boy. Chris Raschka's soulful illustrations buzz with a force that is the perfect match for these powerful words.
    Praise for Be Boy Buzz:
    *"This spare, poetic riff on young manhood plumbs the delights and contradictions of what it means to be a boy....Hooks's rhythmic blend of brevity and eloquence launches Raschka's trademark visual haiku....This life-affirming book will have readers as much 'in love with being a boy' as are its own utterly irresistible characters."
    -Publishers Weekly, starred review

    "[The] poetry is rhythmic and rolling, each word finessed to fit the pulse of [hooks's] verse. The lilt of the language is contagious, begging to be read aloud....Raschka's mixed media illustrations are an energetic dream....Buy it for the boys and all those who love them."
    -Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books

    "[A] pleasing and affirmative visual and textual interpretation of what it means to be a little boy: be boy buzz, indeed."
    -Kirkus Reviews
