In detailed illustrations, a young girl crosses oceans and continents to meet a new friend, in a wordless book-within-a-book story.
The book has no words.
<b>Barbara Lehman</b> has illustrated many books for children, including <i>The Red Book, </i> which was awarded the Caldecott Honor in 2005. Born in Chicago, Barbara attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, where she earned a BFA in communication design. A full-time illustrator, Barbara says, “Books and art have always held the strongest attraction for me. I have always felt drawn to ‘commercial art’ because of its ability to reach many people. I like the idea of being part of the media in a meaningful and thoughtful way, especially with children as the audience.” She lives in the Hudson Valley in upstate New York.
