Page 45 Review by Stephen

THE ROCK FROM THE SKY is one of Klassen's funniest books EVER, substantially upping the ante on all that dramatic irony / tension / anticipation built beautifully during his hat-TRICK of previous books and SAM & DAVE DIG A HOLE with Mac Barnett.

The old adage goes that a picture is worth a thousand words, so I leave you with the interior art on your right to prove my point (and take home remuneration for an 8,000--word review).

The only things I'd add is that the interior art to your right (which you can click on to blow up) is but the beginning of the first story, and there are three stories herein.

The publisher writes:

"Look up! From the Caldecott Medal-winning creator of the Hat trilogy comes a new deadpan gem. Turtle really likes standing in his favourite spot. He likes it so much that he asks his friend Armadillo to come over and stand in it, too.

But now that Armadillo is standing in that spot, he has a bad feeling about it... 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 and existential silliness, celebrated picture-book creator Jon Klassen gives us a wholly original comedy for the ages."
