In the first reading experience of its kind, blast off on a journey through twenty-six feet of continuous vertical art, which reads beautifully no matter which cover you start from. Begin at one end, and you're on the ocean floor; follow a creature along a bright yellow trail up into deep space to his alien family's embrace. Or, start from the other end and follow an alien floating down into the depths of the ocean to rest.
Whether journeying home or heading to bed, enjoy a satisfying and surprising trip from rising star Frank Viva.
Frank Viva is an award-winning illustrator and graphic designer. His illustrations have appeared in The New York Times, on the cover of the New Yorker, on scaffolding surrounding a library, and on the illustrated stationary produced by his company Whigby. But ever since publishing his first picture book, Along a Long Road, making books is his favorite thing to do.
