Starred Review:

I Am the Subway

A bestselling Korean picture book is translated to bring this entrancing tale of “the unique lives of strangers you might never meet again” to a new audience. Told from the perspective of the Seoul subway, the story peels back layers on the people who board, reminding us that everyone we encounter has a story we don’t know. Bewitching watercolor illustrations invite lingering as they present stampedes to the ticket stiles, abalone diving, and the golden light of late afternoon stretched over sleepy faces.
