North, South, East, West (Hardcover)
From Margaret Wise Brown, the bestselling author of classics like Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny, comes a never-before-published story about a little bird’s first journey, brought to life by Geisel Award-winning illustrator Greg Pizzoli.
It’s time for a little bird to fly away
to the north, the south, the east, and the west.
Which direction will she like best?
“The author exposes unspoken depths that make up the parent-child bond, offering nuance and complexity in measured words. Full of simple, curved shapes set in evocative alignments, Pizzoli’s illustrations complement the story well.... equal parts wistful and uplifting-a small triumph.”
“Exploring both the urge to explore and the desire for the familiar, Brown’s story speaks directly to longings at the core of childhood.”
“Every full-color spread bursts with abundant nature and stark beauty....[a] stunning visual homage.”
“Pizzoli’s style is defined by a bright palette and crisp geometric forms that combine to create a Mid-century modern aesthetic befitting a story written by Brown, the mid-century master of picture-book texts.”
