    DescriptionIn The Other Side, artist, designer, commentator, provocateur Istvan Banyal takes us on another exceptional visual journey. In graphically stunning illustrations that feature many clever twists in point of view, familiar scenes turn and turn again to show us the back, the front, the top, the bottom, the opposite, the other side of each perspective. Here's is a door. What's on the other side? Here's a curtain. What's on the other side? Delightful, sly, funny and challenging. The Other Side will make you look and think twice!

    Author Information
    Istvan Banyal, the acclaimed Hungarian born creator of Zoom and Re-Zoom, and the illustrator of several other books for children, is also well known for his editorial illustrations. His perspective, always unexpected (sometimes to him) has made him one of the most original and iconoclastic illustrators of the day.
    Review quote
    "Istvan Banyai's new book, "The Other Side", like its predecessors, "Zoom" and "Rezoom", is visually elegant, devilishly clever and not dependent on words." -The New York Times Book Review"Cunning line drawings serve up a fast-paced, hall-of-mirrors-style adventure that cleverly reveals a timeless point: There are two sides to every story." -Parenting Magazine."..another transformative page-turner." -Publishers Weekly"If this is a children's book, I don't ever want to grow up." -The Kansas City Star"Children who delight in picture puzzles or who enjoy meticulously decoding sequential art may barely come up for air." -The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
    Review text
    A nearly wordless and somewhat fractured foray into what happens when you look at things from a different perspective. Graphite illustrations, with spots of red or yellow digitally added and altered, explore the other side of everything, from windows to the earth. An origami airplane (diagram included) soars out an open window. A real airplane is viewed from the sky and then from its interior, where a boy sees the beach where he's about to vacation. Readers see a zoo tiger from inside and outside the bars, and a clown on stage in front of and behind the curtain. Things are not always what they seem, of course, as what looks like a robbery on one side turns out to be a movie shoot on the other. A boy in a red baseball cap, a girl with a pink bow in her hair and a spotted dog turn up in various places. One even sees the earth from the moon, and the moon from the boy's rooftop. Full of ways to tease out the story and think about how to see things. (Picture book. 5-10) (Kirkus Reviews)
