Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
<p> A book to read with your eyes and your heart . . . </p> <p> "A young boy abandons his beloved electronics when an old-fashioned yellow-jointed tape measure causes his imagination to run wild, in The Carpenter, a wordless expression of the simple joys found in exploration and creative play. Brazilian illustrator Bruna Barros uses basic yet bold contrasting colors, and lines that showcase the transformation of a carpenter's shop into a veritable ocean of wonder, giving Harold and his purple crayon a run for his money." --Foreword Reviews</p> <p>This special book shares its story without a single word. Bruna Barros' beautiful, creative illustrations will capture children's imaginations, showing readers that even the simplest, most common objects can start a wonderful adventure. This book also offers opportunities to foster discussions and spontaneous story telling.</p>
