Without using words, it tells the story of a growing town. Roads are built, trees disappear, building crowd up against each other. Hmm. Clever, but is it really for kids? Will it hold their interest? Will they understand the message here?
This doesn't look like any town that I know, anyway. Where are the subdivisons, located far away from any commercial buildings? Highways? Malls? Parking lots? (If you want a complete look at this book, check out the video.)
The other book that caught my eye is called Seasons by Blexbolex. Now I'm not going to deny the appeal of these illustrations, and the book itself is put together beautifully. (Again, there is a video preview of the book--must be the new thing to do.)
I don't even mind some of the more abstract words.
