What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Harold and his purple crayon have nothing over Ljungkvist, who takes young readers along on a journey from morning to night, from city to sea to village, through page-filling scenes composed, by and large, with one continuous line. As child-friendly as it is technically sophisticated, this will appeal to counters and crayon-wielders alike." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review

This book is such a delight. It is so chic and beautiful, the colors are amazing. As I was tuning the pages, I felt as if I was sampling the season¿s hottest colors. The art is very constructivist/retro ¿ tres cool, and the text is clean and simple (so nice after reading so many poorly written kids books). And, the book lends itself to different levels of reading. Now, if you have a long time, you can not only read the story, you can ¿follow the line¿ with your finger (especially fun for my 3 year old), you can count as instructed in the images, and make up your own little games as you go along. OR, if you just can¿t wait to get your toddler into bed, you can simply read the story, meaning the book can be read in about 2 minutes flat ¿ how great is that? Thank goodness talented artists & writers take time to do kids books like this ¿ it is a gift for both the parents and the kids.

Distinctive, that's what I would say about Laura Ljungkvist's follow the line. Ms. Ljungkvist's illustration has the freshness that children can feel and have fun with, and adult's can understand in a slightly more sophisticated way. The line acts as a common thread to keep everything moving and tie the pages of the book together, but its the use of color and graphics that make this book so outstanding. Ms. Lungkvist seems like a real artist here, more Matisse than simply a children's author. The book is both fun and educational for children and art-like for adults. For my money, this could be a classic.

This feels completely like something produced in the 70's, so, naturally, I enjoyed it. I think kids will enjoy pouring over the small details and trying to answer the questions.
