by Rebecca Kai Dotlich
"One day...I went to school. I came home. The end," says our storyteller—a girl with a busy imagination and a thirst for adventure. The art tells a fuller tale of calamity on the way to school and an unpredictably happy ending. The genius of this picture book is that each illustration captures multiple, unexpected, and funny storylines as the narrator tells her shorter-than-ever stories, ending with "One day...I wanted to write a book." An original and incredibly deep combination of text and art invites readers to make up stories of their own.
