Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A New York Times Editors' Choice Book!

> "This remarkable wordless picture book bursts with buoyant energy as a boy finds the key to a long-unopened door and makes his way from drabness to a joyful, magical land." --The New York Times Book Review

What's on the other side of the door? There's only one way to find out: You'll have to go through it.

JiHyeon Lee's debut book, Pool, was lauded as a wordless masterpiece. Here she takes readers on another journey into an unexpected world. Delicate drawings transform from grays to vivid color as a curious child goes through a mysterious door and discovers that open-mindedness is the key to adventure and friendship.

"Originally published in South Korea in 2018 by Iyagikot Publishing Co."

In this book without words, a boy opens a door and invites the reader to explore the magical world on the other side.

Horn Book Review

A boy in a black-and-white world finds a key and then follows a colorful flying insect to a locked door. The key opens the door onto a full-color Wonderland-style fantasyland full of well-dressed anthropomorphized animals who speak in dialogue-balloon squiggles and include the boy in their festivities. This enchanting wordless book makes a loud-and-clear case for following one's dreams. (c) Copyright 2019. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
