A wordless book...similar to David Weisner's books but for some reason I didn't like this one quite as much as I like Weisner's stuff. Certainly this is a great book to teach kids about perspective (really young kids probably won't get it so best for little bit older kids). I think this book would have been stronger had there been one coherent plot or story expressed, with each image building on the previous one. But as it is, though there is some relationship between some images, the book overall feels like a collection of sketches which express a given action/scene from two different perspectives. Definitely interesting and liksable but not amazing.
