Then that first line and illustration. What a perfect way to describe what a door once was: “a colossal oak tree about three hugs around and as high as the blue.” Those few words on one page and a small door on the opposite surrounded by white space allow the reader let the words and the imagery sink in. Three hugs. As high as the blue. Turn the page…there it is! Three hugs around. As high as the blue. Turn the page again, and find out what the foundation once was. And the walls. And so on and so on until…you’ll have to read for yourself! And I highly recommend that you do.
