"[A] wordless, gloriously inventive debut” from The New York Times selection “Nature and Nurture: 8 Picture Books for Earth Day”
It is a hot summer day in the countryside. The world around is full of beautiful and intriguing creatures. Children are left to their own devices. A lonely girl meets a lonely grasshopper. This seemingly ordinary day will teach her a lot: small actions can have big consequences.
“Ukhova plays with spatial relations and visual distortion, showing up-close and pulled-back views from multiple perspectives — the girl’s, the reader’s, the insects’.” — The New York Times Book Review
