One of Germany's most popular illustrators, Eva Muggenthaler here offers a dozen different two-page paintings that are stories in themselves. Each has only a two-word caption ("Scared—Brave," "Alone—Together," "Happy—Sad") yet the images are so full of unexpected and hilarious details that youngsters up to 7 will find no limit to the situations and relationships they can imagine here, making this book ideal for sharing with an adult or other children in a group.
"An unusual children's book that will lead to visual and conceptual adventures that are profoundly educational."—Midwest Book Review
"A German surrealist debuts on this side of the Atlantic with a set of independent scenes that will give wings to flights of imagination.... [The] central scenarios can be seen in a glance, but further examination reveals smaller and often more ambiguous side business that, properly, invites questions (Why do those ants have shopping bags? Is that a shark's fin in that puddle of spilled soda?) and speculative answers."—Kirkus Reviews
