In the Half Room

Carson Ellis (Author)
Available

Description

From the Caldecott Honor-winning creator of Home and Du Iz Tak? comes a striking tale of a wholly extraordinary room where everything is a half.

The light of the half moon
Shines down on the half room . . .

The half room is full of half things. A half chair, a half cat, even half shoes--all just as nice as whole things. When half a knock comes on half a door, who in the world could it be? With inventive flair, Caldecott Honor winner Carson Ellis explores halves and wholes in an ingenious and thought-provoking picture book. Ink and gouache illustrations featuring wry detail and velvety textures conjure a dreamlike mood while leaving space for imagining. A celebration of the surreal and the serendipitous and the beauty of the two together, this brilliant picture book will have readers seeing halves with whole new eyes.
