Editorial Reviews


“A vibrant neighborhood loses its color, literally, as the community becomes fractured.” Kirkus Reviews

“The illustrations…bring the atmosphere and ideas of the story to life. The depictions of both isolation and community in a dense urban neighborhood are poignant, especially after a year when COVID-19 forced people worldwide to forgo, and then to reinvent, community togetherness.” Booklist

“An impressively original, charmingly entertaining, and memorably illustrated picture book story for children ages 4-8, Between the Lines is unreservedly recommended for family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school, and community library collections for young readers.” —Midwest Book Review

From the Publisher

One child can be the spark that causes change. That takeaway is what I love most about this engaging book, which focuses on the importance of community as told from the perspective of a young boy. When his once-vibrant neighborhood quite literally fades because people have stopped interacting, the boy takes matters into his own hands.

With the loss of community, the illustrations shift dramatically from vibrant color to grayscale; purples, greens, and yellows appear only in memories and dreams. But the boy holds out hope, and when the adults around him seem content to leave things as is, he and his friends show them a better way. I hope this book helps the children in your life see what big things one small person can do.

—Kelsey Skea, Editor
