That Neighbor Kid (17)

Not rated yet
0

There’s a new boy in the neighborhood, and he’s up to something very curious. His next door neighbor, a girl his age with two long braids, peeps around corners and watches as he scavenges wood from the fence between their houses, drags around a hammer and a bucket of nails, and reads a book about living in trees. When she finally works up the courage to say “hi,” she finds herself invited to help build the private getaway every child has dreamed of: a tree house. She also finds herself with a new best friend.

Book Reviews: "A timeless tale about backyard fun and friendship." (Kirkus 3/1/17) "From the beautifully constructed spreads to the perfect pacing and satisfying conclusion, this simple story of new friendship and joint accomplishment is a pleasure." (School Library Journal *STARRED* March 2017) "Miyares sets this sensitively crafted tale in a nostalgic past when children’s lives were less scheduled and supervised; like the tree house, it’s a good place to escape to." (Publishers Weekly 03/13/17) "A gentle story of friendship and cooperation, elevated by appealing visual detail." — Lucinda Whitehurst (Booklist April 1, 2017) "This almost wordless picture book is reminiscent of Lynd Ward’s The Silver Pony and some Van Allsburg titles. Delightful for its illustrations and simple story with a profound message, this is a thoughtful, adventurous story for young readers." (School Library Connection August/September 2017) Acclaimed author/illustrator Daniel Miyares returns to the sweet, nostalgic tone of his beloved illustrated book, Float, in this gorgeous, spare picture book about making a new friend. There’s a new boy in the neighborhood, and he’s up to something very curious. His next door neighbor, a girl his age with two long braids, peeps around corners and watches as he scavenges wood from the fence between their houses, drags around a hammer and a bucket of nails, and reads a book about living in trees. When she finally works up the courage to say “hi,” she finds herself invited to help build the private getaway every child has dreamed of: a tree house. She also finds herself with a new best friend.
