Never, ever judge a book by its cover


LINE 135 by Germano Zullo with illustrations by Albertine. Chronicle, 2013.

Rarely am I at a loss for words. However, this exquisite picture book leaves me speechless, moved, exultant. Line drawings with a train in bold shades of yellow, green, and orange move across double page spreads. Our narrator talks about getting to know the entire world, of traveling from one place to another until the mission is accomplished. The adults say it cannot be done, but our narrator knows all is possible. This is a must see and a must share book!
