"A must-have wordless picture book."--Library Media Connection, starred review
"This book brilliantly illustrates the passing time in myriad delightful ways. Wordless, Avant Après features pairs of images that show varied and unexpected before-and-after scenarios. The illustrations are graphic, clear, and uncluttered in a rich palette. While the its non-linearity invites readers to dip in and leaf through the pages at random, the end of the book triggers the desire to re-read it from the beginning and let time pass as they do."
"A completely engrossing, wordless story."--NPR Best Books of 2014
