9780316221962: A Long Way Away


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.

About the Author:

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.

Review:

★ "Intelligently conceived and handsomely executed, it's a potential classic."Publishers Weekly [starred review]

★  "Cleverly designed and perfectly executed, this dynamic two-way story across space, land and sea offers multidimensional adventure and possibilities. . . . Meticulously designed, from its art direction to the print and finish on the pages, this is a thoughtful and thought-provoking work."Kirkus [starred review]

★"This ingenious book invites many repeat readings." School Library Journal [starred review]

"Illustrated with the joyous aesthetic of a Matisse cut-paper collage, the story works gracefully both ways, and children will love following the character as it ventures away from home in one version, then back to the security of its family in the other. "A Long Way Away" delivers an exciting out-and-back adventure while proving there's still room for invention in the nondigital book format"
The New York Times
