Read full description of the books:
The collage illustrations in this book are amazing. The textures make everything look so real. And it’s the pictures that tell the story as this is a virtually wordless picture book.
These two intersecting stories are not exactly mirrors of each other so I don’t know that it’s got an ideal title, though the author’s note at the end does explain it, and I enjoyed seeing the inhabitants and scenery in the two settings: the Valley of Roses in southern Morocco and Sydney, Australia, the latter being the author-illustrator’s home.
As a child I’d have carefully poured over these pictures, over and over again. The story of the differences and similarities of the two families is interesting.
This isn’t my very favorite Jeannie Baker book but I did enjoy it.
It did take a bit of dexterity and some light acrobatics to read this though. The reader has to hold the right and left sides of the book and turn pages on each side in order to simultaneously look at the pages side by side.
Particularly enjoyed the depictions of the dog and cat and of some of the clothes, surprisingly with the latter, not at all surprised by the former.
