Somewhere in Sydney, Australia, a boy and his family wake up, eat
breakfast, and head out for a busy day of shopping. Meanwhile, in a
small village in Morocco, a boy and his family go through their own
morning routines and set out to a bustling market. In this ingenious,
wordless picture book, readers are invited to compare, page by page, the
activities and surroundings of children in two different cultures.
Their lives may at first seem quite unalike, but a closer look reveals
that there are many things, some unexpected, that connect them as well.
Designed to be read side by side—one from the left and the other from
the right—these intriguing stories are told entirely through richly
detailed collage illustrations.
