I love this book. It is wonderfully imagined and, as usual for Wiesner, beautifully executed. No words, just pictures. I don’t think there’s actually a way to tell the story of this book in words. The animals are perfectly done and very scientifically accurate, even if the story is fantastic. It is on my shelf of favorite books and I find new things to love every time I look at it. Best read at home or in a small group, due to the lack of words. For the right kind of kid, this could set off hours of imaginary play.
