From much-lauded artist Laura Ljungkvist, whose Follow the Line series earned praise for its clean, Scandinavian style and ingenious premise, comes a playful board book perfect for the toddler and pre-K set, and sure to please parents who are fans of modern design. Starting on the front cover, and winding its way across each page to the end, a single line forms different shapes that demonstrate opposites ("clean" or "messy") in Ljungkvist's signature modern style. Children can follow the playful and ingenious line, which winds its way across brightly colored and patterned pages, till it ultimately forms "you" and "me," for a warmly charming ending.
Laura Ljungkvist has developed a fan base as the author and illustrator of numerous children's titles, including the award-winning series Follow the Line (Viking, 2006-2011), Pepi Sings a New Song (Beach Lane, 2010) and, most recently, as the illustrator of Mem Fox'sYoo-Hoo, Lady Bug (Beach Lane, 2013).

Review quote

*Amazon Big Spring Books Baby - Age 2!* "This pleasing book introduces the youngest children to the power of lines to create artistic impressions, and it will appeal equally to parents who crave bright, sophisticated, minimalist graphic design -- the design of any of these pages would look right at home on a throw pillow in a style-conscious living room."
- The New York Times "I am just loving using this board book to teach my almost 3-year old about opposites and even some design and math basics as we talk about the infinite possibilities of a simple line."
