My Town's (Extra) Ordinary People

(3) K-3 Translated by Paul Kelly. Young Theo introduces the reader to his neighbors, including Carla, the woman who feeds the birds in the park, and Deshaun, who recites poetry while walking his son to school. Each spread of this German import includes a collage-style portrait in a retro palette featuring clean shapes and flat colors. The rich observations remind readers that everyone walking by has an interesting story to tell.
