From first time children's author David Sayre and award-winning illustrator Rebecca Emberley comes a story of our place in the universe as experienced by Owuza and his Flatlander friends. Follow along as they explore Flatland and its limits, discovering themselves in the process. This story may take you beyond your ordinary experience and open discussion about where "here" is, what is out "there," and what happens when people and things we love are no longer where we can see them. Emberley's gorgeous, tapestry-like depictions of Flatland are a perfect foil for Sayre's deep, yet simple story.

K-Gr 2—Owuza arrives in Flatland as a simple circle, with vibrant, multicolored asymmetrical eyes, and develops a body as he grows, much as a fertilized egg evolves. With a lot to learn, he negotiates his way around, taking in the sights, sounds and smells of this new home floating in the universe. In getting to know the other inhabitants, he "soon forgot the time before he came to Flatland" and takes great pleasure in creating and building with new friends. At times, he wonders if there is anything beyond "here" but doesn't consider this possibility often, as he's happy with his life. One morning, his friends awaken to find that Owuza is nowhere to be found. Turning to one another for consolation, they understand that, though he's gone, he lives on in them and their lives have been enriched for knowing him. Emberley's distinctive luminous illustrations on black backgrounds depict Owuza growing and changing as he learns about his surroundings and shares his love. His abrupt departure may trouble some readers, while others may find comfort in knowing he came from somewhere else and has left this home for another place.—Maryann H.
