CHILDREN’S PICTURE BOOKS
Maja Kastelic, Annick Press (SEPTEMBER) Softcover $9.95 (32pp), 978-1-77321-054-4
An inquisitive boy follows a trail of paper clues into a shadowy building in a wordless early-morning adventure full of friendship, surprises, and the dawning of a new day. Beautifully layered watercolor paintings capture the mystery and nostalgia of Eastern European streets and rooftops. Hidden gems abound in the details as a curious cat and playful mice lead the way. Light and shadow surround the boy as he moves bravely forward with wonder.
