I must confess, when I saw this book’s cover, it was love at first sight. It’s just so beautiful! And Along a Long Road is one of those perfect books where the words are spare, the pictures are rich, and once you are finished you can’t wait to open it again. Be sure not to miss the tiny treasures throughout – the farmer waving, the mustached ice cream man, and a cheeky young chap.
You could trace that yellow road from page to page – it bends and twists, but never breaks. Frank Viva created the art for this book as one single illustration. If you printed it, it would stretch to thirty-five feet long! Isn’t that amazing?
