The Rock From the Sky By Jon Klassen, Walker Books $29.99 .. .. This is one of the more unusual kids' books I've seen. It is mostly pictorial and quite long, divided into five chapters, almost like a play. It starts with turtle who has a favourite spot. But his friend says the spot gives him a bad feeling. So he finds another spot. The two spots are too far apart for them to talk so they eventually have to move closer. Meanwhile a meteor is falling. I think you can tell where this is going. There's an offbeat and understated humour going on here which I enjoyed. —
