Notes From Your Bookseller

Jon Klassen is back with his classic wit and dry humor — this time, exploring friendship, life’s ambiguity and what the future may hold. The only thing better than a Klassen creation is a Klassen creation that’s 96 pages! A natural addition to anyone’s bookshelf.

Look up! From the Caldecott Medal–winning creator of the hat trilogy comes a new deadpan gem.

There is a spot.
It is a good spot.
It is the perfect spot to stand.
There is no reason to ever leave.
But somewhere above there is also a rock.
A rock from the sky.

Here comes The Rock from the Sky, a hilarious meditation on the workings of friendship, fate, shared futuristic visions, and that funny feeling you get that there’s something off somewhere, but you just can’t put your finger on it. Merging broad visual suspense with wry wit, celebrated picture book creator Jon Klassen gives us a wholly original comedy for the ages.
