Kids are going to LOVE this fantastic picture book…delightfully complex
— San Francisco Book Review
An irreverent and matter-of-factly told story that's perhaps just as satisfying to mount on the wall, tapestry-style, as it is to 'read' in a traditional sense.
— Publishers Weekly
Don't even attempt to read this book in a chair. Set it on the floor and watch as the story reveals itself in a vertical fashion. The matte art is fabulous, with each detailed, colorful scene unfolding along with the text. Kids will want to pore over the pictures, which feature layers of staircases and bridges, winding roads and rivers, and city streets and ocean depths… The story and the art are guaranteed to charm them.
— School Library Journal
Sumptuously illustrated… To get the full effect of this spectacular picture book, you'll need at least 10 feet of floor or table space. Tiny search-and-find details and a pervading sense of good humor make this a rewarding (if logistically awkward) experience.
