Horn Book Review

Two boys drawing lines on the ground accidentally back into each other, which sparks the idea to join forces. Their merged line enters three-dimensional space, becoming a rope, leading them to a game of tug-of-war that threatens to undo their bond when a chasm opens up between them. This potent wordless allegory is illustrated in black and white with moody color accents. (c) Copyright 2018. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
