About the Book
A girl in a wheelchair looks down from her balcony and calls to passersby below: “Look up!”
Dog walkers, a bike rider, a kite flier and dozens of commuters walk by without taking any notice. Then a boy stops and looks up. He lies on the sidewalk so the girl can see him better. A woman joins him. Soon nine people and one dog are lying down and looking up. The girl looks up at the reader and smiles.
Art and text that are dramatic and elegant tell a story of kindness, compassion and friendship.
- Awarded an Opera Prima Honor at the Bologna Book Fair.
