Starred Review:

The Storyteller's Handbook

“You will be the storyteller,” navigating through this exquisite wordless picture book whose images suggest deep tales, but do not over pronounce their parameters. Each feathery illustration plays with proportions and subverts expectations: giant owls tower over buildings; koalas lounge on drifting autumn leaves. A girl walks a cloud on a leash. A woman takes in tea, bathed in the light of a rising sun. A mouse rises to the stars. What’s going on behind these magical scenes? That’s for you to decide!
