A little girl finds the end of a line and her adventure begins. She follows it through the pages as it becomes a slide, a hoop, a bubble...and then something that threatens to spoil the fun. In the spirit of Harold and the Purple Crayon, this funny story is a tribute to making the impossible possible, with a surprise on every pageright through to the back cover.

MEDIA REVIEWS

“Bossio’s wordless story celebrates childhood fun, from the way the girl sticks out her tongue at the vanquished dragon to the smudges reproduced all over the pages.” - Publishers Weekly

“...subtly sparks a child’s imagination. The book doesn’t have to tell you to put away your iPad, it shows you just why you don’t need it: a child’s wonder is far more interesting.” - Washington Post

“Bossio’s scratchy, unkempt style gives the figures a sense of frenetic excitement and animation, and the backgrounds include vague shadows of scribbles and smears, all of which lends the sense of something handmade, a work of unfettered imagination.” - Booklist Online
