“This transportive wordless picture book debut from Argentinean author/illustrator Alonso taps into childhood imagination in a journey of discovery, experimentation, and letting go [...] Alonso uses every aspect of the book to great effect. The book size, format, and similar use of line and space is reminiscent of author/illustrator Suzy Lee, and both excel at capturing universal child experiences and imaginations. VERDICT A captivating debut that children of all ages will want to soak in multiple times. A must-purchase for libraries; Alonso will be an artist to watch”.
