Product Description

This book appears to contain a number of stories that do not necessarily occur at the same time. But it may contain only one story. Then again, there may be four stories. Or four parts of a story. Careful inspection of both words and pictures is recommended.

There is a train. There is a boy returning to his parents. There are commuters waiting impatiently. There are some strange parents indeed. And there are the Holstein cows that, when they get out of their field, are almost impossible to find.

David Macaulay once again displays his conceptual genius. He has created an inventive book that can be appreciated on many different levels. The reader will be entertained and challenged by the intermingling of the episodes. The perceptive reader will be rewarded with new perspectives each time the book is explored. Recommended for ages 5 to 8. The 1991 Caldecott Medal winner.

Publisher's Description

Winner of the 1991 Caldecott Medal 

Four stories are told simultaneously, with each double-page spread divided into quadrants. The stories do not necessarily take place at the same moment in time, but are they really one story?

Editorial Reviews

"This work engages another side of the mind. It's a story; it's a puzzle; it's a game . . . Macaulay refuses to be confined by the conventions of the picture book." Booklist, ALA, Starred Review
