This would make a beautiful gift for many different ages, including design and art loving adults. ---------------------------------------------- Shadow is a beautiful work of art that allows imaginations to soar, children and adults alike. An almost entirely wordless book, told only through Lee's gorgeous and spare illustrations. The young heroine starts out in the family's attic, with a "click" of the light, she is thrown into a world of light and shadow, represented only with the colors black, white and yellow. To start, the left side of the spread shows the attic as is, with our little girl in the middle, while the right side of the spread is the shadow interpretation of the attic. On the right, brooms become flowers, ladders become vines and hoses become snakes. Slowly the right and left sides of the spread combine to become a celebration of the creative power of our young heroine and the reader. There is no right or wrong story, just the one the reader wants to imagine. This and other wordless books make for terrific confidence boosts for young, fledgling readers.
