Publisher Comments:

A child's epic adventure is depicted brilliantly in this elegant and visually stunning collaboration between a mother and son. The poet--Nina Payne--conjures the world in all its symmetry and beauty, using only fifty-six common nouns that every child knows. The artist--Adam Payne---tells the story of a child's discovery of creation in exquisite cut-paper collage. The poet's and artist's visions come together seamlessly, enhancing each, transcending both to create a perfect picture book.
