This tender, funny picture book celebrating all forms of love is from the award-winning author-illustrator dream team, Mac Barnett and Carson Ellis.
‘What is love?’ a young boy asks. ‘I can’t answer that,’ his grandmother says, and so the boy goes out into the world to find out. But while each person he meets – the fisherman, the actor and others – has an answer to his question, not one seems quite right. Could love really be a fish, or applause or the night? Or could it actually be something much closer to home?
A wonderful narrative voice and spectacular pictures give this book the feel of a modern classic. This book begins from the child’s perspective, and it’s funny and unexpected in ways that children can relate to, while being thoughtful in ways that adults will appreciate.
Mac Barnett is a New York Times bestselling author and Carson Ellis is a Caldecott Honor winner and illustrator of some of the most interesting and beautiful children’s books published today.
