The Rock From The Sky
is the latest deadpan picture book gem from Jon Klassen, the Caldecott Medal-winning creator of the Hat trilogy.
Turtle really likes standing in his favourite spot. He likes it so much that he asks his friend Armadillo to come over and stand in it, too. But now that Armadillo is standing in that spot, he has a bad feeling about it... A hilarious meditation on the workings of friendship, fate, shared futuristic visions and that funny feeling you get that there’s something off somewhere, but you just can’t put your finger on it. Another perfect picture book from Jon Klassen, mixing broad visual suspense with wit and existential silliness. We love it!
