The sky's no limit in a witty board book about a child on a swing and the wonders of the imagination.
One child. One swing. An obliging dad. The inevitable plea to go "Higher! Higher!" Add Leslie Patricelli's wildly expressive illustrations, and an everyday pastime reaches new heights of humor and whimsy.
Patricelli's father-daughter duo returns in Faster! Faster!.
"What starts out as a pleasant everyday experience quickly ramps up playfully and imaginatively, taking the child out of this world to another realm, but bringing her back so quickly and safely she can’t wait to venture out again. The acrylic paintings, in which heavy black outlines boldly define shapes and intensify the colors within them, pare down the scenes to focus attention on what is essential to the story. A wonderfully simple book that’s simply wonderful for reading aloud." -- Carolyn Phelan, Booklist
