Overview

"In Jonas' latest tour de force of trompe l'oeil, each double-spread serves twice: as in Round Trip, the book is reversed for a return journey, in this case from forest to seaside....A rain cloud becomes a flock of ducks, a ferry upends to a restaurant....Fascinating."?Kirkus Reviews.

Chronicles a child's busy day by the sea, in a forest, and then home with the hope of going to a carnival or concert. The illustrations change when the book is turned upside down.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Like her innovative black-and-white picture book Round Trip, this is an arresting and exciting exercise in imagination and graphic design. The story of one child's day in a small seaside town begins at dawn and includes encounters with morning fishermen, a trip to the seashore, boatyard, beach, the peach orchard and the birch grove. Since ``it's a little scary deep in the woods,'' readers are prompted to turn the book around ``and find . . . (the) way back'' home to bedbut not before many additional visual treats. In a few spreads the connection between image and narrative stretches credibility, but the overall effect is so vivid and striking that readers are quickly caught up again in the enticing circularity of Jonas's vision. Ages 5-8. (September)
