Review: Mister Horizontal and Miss Vertical

Mister Horizontal loves everything horizontal. Sideways stripes. Horizons. Figure skating. Water skiing. Swimming and walking.

Miss Vertical loves everything vertical. Stairs. Climbing. The high wire. Bungee jumping.

As we journey through this striking book in black, white, red, blue and yellow, we learn more about the fabulous things Mister Horizontal and Miss Vertical love to do.

Clean pages and beautiful graphic illustrations (babies and toddlers would be entranced by its high contrast) carry the story beautifully--and I particularly loved the ending (with a highly personal touch).
Can you guess what might happen when Mister Horizontal and Miss Vertical meet?

Clever, thoughtful and well-penned, this adorable book packs a magnificent visual punch, and the dust jacket opens up into a large, graphic poster.
