From Colin Thompson, whose work has been described by The New York Times as "unusually provocative and rewarding," comes a lush journey into the soul of a young city boy who finds peace amidst the chaos around him. The noise of blaring radios, honking horns, fighting neighbors, crying babies, and his own shouting mother are driving Peter crazy. His salvation appears in the form of a fabulous park in the west of the city where he finds shelter from the storm in his mind and a refuge for his weary senses. Thompson's intricate art is filled with hidden surprises, begging the reader to look again and again, holding forth the promise of a new reward each time. Fans of Thompson's previous pictorial fantasies (Looking for Atlantis, The Paper Bag Prince) will welcome his latest, and new readers will thrill at the opulence and wisdom of this stunning visual feast.About the Author:
