The Boy on the Page

(3) K-3 "One quiet morning, a small boy landed on the page." There he plants a tree, falls in love, etc. Still, he ultimately tries jumping off, "only to tumble straight back" onto a scene full of the people who love him--"At last...he knew why he was here." This existential meditation works because the illustrations are lighthearted and the philosophizing light-handed.
