By Link, Kelly; Illustrated by Tan, Shaun
Through the lens of Link's vivid imagination, nothing is what it seems, and everything deserves a second look. Now in her first YA story collection, Link delivers stories that are funny and full of unexpected insights and skewed perspectives on the world. Illustrations.
Three stories explore how we lose and find what matters most to us, as a girl finds a bright spot in a dark world, a boy leads a strange, lost being home, and a group of peaceful creatures loses its home to cruel invaders.
Two boys explain the occasionally mysterious rules they learned over the summer, like never eat the last olive at a party, never ruin a perfect plan, and never give your keys to a stranger.
In this wordless graphic novel, Tan captures the struggles and joy of the immigrant experience through clear, mesmerizing images which tell the story of a man who leaves his homeland and his family to build a better life. Young adult.
