In the Half Room by Carson Ellis.

From the Caldecott Honor-winning creator of Home and Du Iz Tak? comes a gorgeous and quirky tale of an extraordinary room where everything is a half.

The half room is full of half things. A half chair, a half cat, even half shoes - all just as nice and weird and friendly as whole things. When half a knock comes on half a door, who in the world could it be? With her trademark touch of magic and whimsy, Caldecott Honor winner Carson Ellis explores halves and wholes in an ingenious and thought-provoking picture book. The lightly rhyming text is soothing yet spirited, revealing the many absurdities and possibilities to be discovered in this irresistibly fanciful home. Ink and gouache illustrations featuring wry detail and velvety textures conjure a dreamlike mood while leaving space for imagining. A celebration of the surreal and the serendipitous, and the beauty of the two together, this brilliant picture book will have readers seeing the joys of halves with whole new eyes.

Picture books have the ability to evoke the essence of childhood — to allow us to see the world through a child’s eyes and to feel the world with a child’s heart. We hope you enjoy creating your own book traditions and growing your child’s library filled with beautiful books for the whole family to enjoy!
