Reviews

Praise for Lift A Summer 2020 Kids' Indie Next List
* "Styled like a graphic novel's, the illustrations focus on Iris' feelings as she imagines a new elevator button, one that she can control, with the magical ability to transport her to other worlds. Frustration, invention, escape, wonder -- all move across the pages with immediacy. Like Sendak's Max, Iris uses anger to lift her away from the real world into jungles and outer space. And she returns to her room changed. Breaking the bounds of a traditional picture book, Iris' creative growth elevates us all."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* "Beautiful art enhances an uplifting story that encourages readers to share secret wonders with one another -- even annoying kid siblings."--School Library Journal, starred review
* "The story is beautifully told through Santat's expressive characters and dynamic panels of sequential art..... [It's] an entirely immersive experience that children will reach for, again and again, like their own magic button."--Booklist, starred review
* "An excellent choice for individual consumption or as a read-aloud, this story is sure to get creative juices flowing."--School Library Connection, starred review
* "Santat's comedic versatility and theatrical use of light give the story cinematic momentum, while Lê's insight into Iris's conflicting emotions adds depth and warmth to the tale."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Uplifting."--The Horn Book
