Overview

Young children who love adventure will revel in the outstanding illustrations of this imaginative journey, which fall somewhere between fine art and graphic novel

A young boy's simple answers to his mother's inquiries at bedtime introduce the reader to his recollection of his ordinary day. Q: "How are you doing?" A: "Good." Q: "What was your day like?": A: "You know, same old thing." Q: "What did you do today?" A: "Nothing." Far from being 'nothing,' our protagonist takes us on several adventures that walk the line between real and imagined, as we discover that his version of 'nothing' is more of a robust something than anything we or his mom could have imagined.

Reviews

"This gorgeously illustrated, inventive book is sure to entrance young readers. Creatures from mythology break the fourth wall (or page) in this surrealistic guide …beautiful, painterly illustrations and wild tessellated backgrounds offer details for both younger lap readers and older independent ones." —Kirkus Reviews
