A little too abstract for right now, but very cool layout and concept. The book opens up and down instead of left and right, with reality on top and shadow beneath - but the shadows don't always reflect reality, Peter Pan-style. Mostly black and white with some warm yellow. ( )

The story begins with a girl playing in her garage and notices all the different shadows from the objects around the room. She begins to create a shadow bird with her hands and later discovers that all the different objects can create a shadow that can be seen differently. The vacuum becomes and elephant and the young girl imagines that she is in Africa. She explores what she thinks would be in Africa and then is interrupted by her parents to come up for dinner. She turns out the light and all the shadows disappear. ( )

a wordless picture book that discusses the different things that shadows can turn into with the right imagination.

Suzy Lee is the author and illustrator of several wordless picture books that incorporate multicultural elements. One thing I enjoy about graphic novels and picture books is the cross-curricular connections that can be made. Shadow could be used as an example of negative and positive space in a middle school art class or to discuss how shadows are made in a science class. Students could also explain what is happening in the story by making assumptions about the pictures and predictions. ( )
