CABA14B5-BC71-42B4-B160-65CF11B8AB73Summary: (from my library’s catalog) Come explore a boy’s family tree one side at a time, starting from the front of his photo album and then starting from the back–and see how they come together in the middle!

00F3DF28-8C80-4216-ADF4-EC2731EA5D46I like this book because: of the nifty idea to have the two (family) sides come together in the middle! AND it’s sooooo beautifully rendered! You might remember Petričić’s illustrations for another wonderful book: The Man With The Violin, written by Kathy Stinson – watch the trailer/interview below.
