9781585368884: The Flying Hand of Marco B.

A routine ride in the backseat of his parents' car takes a fantastical turn when a young boy opens the car door window. With the click of the seat belt and door locks, Marco B. is securely tucked into the backseat of his parents' car, heading out on a family errand. With the car window opened to the fresh air, this could be the start of any routine trip. But not if you're Marco B. and most certainly not if you're Marco B.'s hand! As the car travels along and the scenery rushes by, Marco B. puts his hand out the window and fantasizes about flying. And once his hand has felt the wind rushing around it, it has no intention of staying in the car. Marco B. soon finds himself on a wild ride up in the sky. Told in rhyming text.

About the Author:

Shahar Kober is an illustrator and art director based in Israel. Shahar holds a degree in design and now teaches illustration for animation. His favorite projects often include adventurous animals, although Zoey is his first brave chicken.

Review:

Musician and adman Leiter's debut's a rhyming romp of creative play, and Marco's quick trip into the sky will be familiar to imaginative tots. Israeli illustrator Kober's soaring, colorful illustrations are an ideal match. He renders Marco with light-brown skin and short, straight black hair that almost comes to a kewpie curl in front. Little listeners will be hoping their hands will take flight on their next road trips. --Kirkus Reviews

Leiter's background in creating advertising jingles is on full display in his first children's book; there are very few hiccups in his colloquial, syncopated rhymes, which virtually beg to be set to music. Despite Marco's fears as he enters the stratosphere, Kober (the Engineer Ari series) keeps the mood light: as Marco hovers far above the Earth, he shares (outer) space with a three-eyed alien in a flying saucer, a Laika-esque dog in a space capsule, and a stray astronaut who has snagged an orange balloon that has floated up along with Marco. It's a cheerful flight of fancy that should send imaginations soaring. --Publishers Weekly

The breezy rhyming text reads easily and sets the pace for Marco B's flight. Kober's illustrations have a fluidity that moves with the story and helps the reader fly along with Marco B. Whimsical and surprising, this elevates an everyday car ride from mundane to majestic. --Booklist
