I've mixed feelings about this book.

Richard Egielski's Caldecott Award winning illustrations were wonderful - the drab one room apartment contrasting with the bright floating island - the picture elements escaping the confines of the border, the morphing - the Icarus-like illustration.

The story on the other hand I didn't really like. The bird filled paradise was a little weird... Utilising a janitor as the downtrodden character a little stereotypical... The emotional rollercoaster of an end all a little too neat...
