What If...? Then We...: Short, Very Short, Shorter-Than-Ever Possibilities

(3) PS Illustrated by Fred Koehler. "What if...all the words in the universe disappeared? / Then we would invent a whole new language." Dotlich presents eight other intense "What if...?" scenarios that provoke thought, entertain, and, as a bonus, may offer reassurance for high-anxiety young readers. Playing out the hypothetical scenes in Koehler's mixed-media art are two polar bears who navigate their boat through a comfortingly cartoonish Arctic setting.
