First edition. Winner of the 1991 Caldecott Medal. Four stories are told simultaneously, with each double-page spread divided into quadrants. The stories do not necessarily take place at the same moment in time, but are they really one story? A beautiful and celebrated picture book from the author of The Way Things Work.
