Two Interactive Adventures in One!
By Frank Viva (Electronic Book, 2013)

In the first reading experience of its kind, blast off on a journey through twenty-six feet of continuous vertical art, which reads beautifully no matter which cover you start from. Begin at one end, and you're on the ocean floor; follow a creature along a bright yellow trail up into deep space to his alien family's embrace. Or, start from the other end and follow an alien floating down into the depths of the ocean to rest.

Whether journeying home or heading to bed, enjoy a satisfying and surprising trip from rising star Frank Viva.

Frank Viva is an award-winning illustrator and graphic designer. His illustrations have appeared in The New York Times, on the cover of the New Yorker, on scaffolding surrounding a library, and on the illustrated stationary produced by his company Whigby. But ever since publishing his first picture book, Along a Long Road, making books is his favorite thing to do.
  • * "This outstanding visual treat about the open road will inspire readers." - School Library Journal (starred review)

    "This is one of those rare picture books that deserves a place not only on a child's bookshelf but in an art museum - and would be equally at home in both." - The Boston Globe

    "Simultaneously stylish and restrained." - Publishers Weekly

    "A terrific debut from Viva." - The New York Times

  • Embark on a two-way journey beyond your wildest dreams!
     
    Start from one end of the book, and zoom away on an adventure that begins on a distance planet and takes you soaring downward, among aliens, spaceships and stars, down past the moon to plunge into the earth's mysterious deep. Or, start from the other end, and take off on a voyage that begins far underwater and take you zipping upward, past scuba divers, schools of fish, up beyond the cityscape to soar into the wondrous cosmos.

    A Long Way Away is a surprising and marvelous flight of fancy from rising star Frank Viva.
