Summary

A CLASSIC IN THE MAKING FROM THE 2008 CALDECOTT HONOR WINNER

ONE BOY is a perfect example of why Kirkus Reviews calls Laura Vaccaro Seeger the "emerging master of the concept book"-a die-cut book exploring counting and words-within-words, and the power of art and imagination. At the start, readers see a sad boy surrounded by empty, lonely chairs. At his feet is a bag with paint brushes peeking out. The text reads "ONE boy" which-with a turn of the page and a look through a cleverly cut hole-turns into "all alONE." Page after page, the book becomes populated with seals, apes, and monkeys, all examples of words-within-words. Finally, we come back to "ONE boy" who is "all dONE," and we discover where all the characters came from.

One Boy is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
