A child’s artwork comes to life and takes him on an out-of-this-world adventure. In this bewitchingly wordless black-and-white picture book, one young child explores the boundless reaches of his imagination. Armed only with a pencil and a pad of paper, he transports himself to the moon, the deep sea, and remote jungles where he meets new friends, visits undiscovered words, and makes his way back home again to his own bed before dawn.
Damon Lehrer’s visual narrative, a penciled mix of line work and detailed graphite drawings, will appeal to readers of all ages who are invited to help tell the story.
“The meticulously drafted pencil spreads recall the sorts of visual adventures found in Chris Van Allsburg’s books, and Lehrer’s self-referential story also salutes the power of drawing.”
