Product description


* "A sumptuously illustrated fable about the magic of storytelling and the power of imagination."
--School Library Journal, starred review

* "Surreal, staggering mixed-media paintings make traveling across such beautifully varied and bizarre storyscapes exhilarating."
--Kirkus, starred review

"Tiny vignettes of the girl looking at these very images in her own treastured book create the sense that readers are reading it along with her...Zagarenski's artwork is irresistable"
--Publishers Weekly

"The fanciful combination of opulent imagery and mysterious detail will have children imagining stories of their own."
--Horn Book Magazine

"[T]he fabulously layered paintings by two-time Caldecott honor winner Zagarenski are so beautifully constructed and lavishly painted -- swirling patterns and honeycombs in the background, winsome creatures in the fore -- that readers can't help but fall for this book."
--The Boston Globe
