Wiesner‘s line work on the trees, dragon, grass, birds, and so on set the setting for the book so we‘ll. He left no one guessing.

His detail in each page and picture was unbelievable. His line work and color gave the book great dimension.

Free Fall by David Wiesner published in 1988 captures a great story through only pictures. A little boy goes on a late night adventure flying across the sky.

Mehso-so

It‘s a picture book that has a boy who is dreaming about the world and going to a castle and being a knight. There‘s a picture whenever he has a sword and a dragon is laying on the ground. There‘s farm animals one is a pig that he rides on.

Just a beautiful wordless children's book. The little boy falls asleep with the book across his chest. Each two-page spread illustrates another step on his fantastical journey through his imagination. Or his imagination nurtured by the book and his surroundings. I need to pick up Wiesner's other books. Thank you to @Gina for the recommendation!

Gina I was 18 years old (no kids) when I picked this up on a whim. If you notice, if you tore out all the pictures and lined them up side by side they make one flowing picture (not that I would do that). Also at the end of the book you can do a "find it" search for all the things in his dream. Chess pieces, salt shaker, belt, etc. So glad you fell in ♡with it the way I did! 3y
ocdIrene @Gina I didn't notice the side-by-side mural effect until the last few pages. As the swans flew with him home, I realized that there was continuous motion and I went back and reread it. Definitely a book I want to read with my nieces and nephew to see what they notice in the story. 3y
Gina @ocdIrene my kids are older now but I still like to flip through this book and daydream. It is one of those kind of books that leaves you room to explore. Your nieces and nephew will love it. 3y

Gina @ocdIrene if you like philosophy mixed into your children's books was a little Tolstoy twist I would also suggest The Three Questions by Jon J Muth fantastic children's book. 3y
ocdIrene @Gina Just requested The Three Questions from the library. Sounds fantastic! Thank you! 3y
Gina @ocdIrene You are so very welcome. I love philosophy mixed with children's books and I have a ton of suggestions if you ever want more. You will love The Three Questions it is beautifully written with gorgeous watercolors. 3y

It would be a shame to have never paged through this gorgeous water colored book from 1988
