A winter moon and a snowy hill form the serene backdrop for this almost wordless tale of a bear who co-opts a child’s sled and takes his animal friends on a wild midnight ride . . . only to have the sled’s owner join them in the end.
Click! A little girl creates shadows when she turns on the light . . . or do the shadows create her? Clever use of the gutter and semi-transparent pages transform a pile of junk into an eerie black, white, and yellow world.
In this wordless picture book, children draw with enchanted chalk to make the sun, butterflies, and a tyrannosaurus rex come alive. Realistic acrylic and colored pencil illustrations create exaggerated facial expressions that emphasize the excitement of this extraordinary adventure.
