"Paquet and Sandoval together offer up a gorgeously illustrated, nightmarish dreamscape of a young boy experiencing traumatic emotional turmoil." (Booklist (Starred)). Eleven-year-old Pepe's world turns inside-out when he finds himself pulled inside the walls of his own home, seemingly trapped in a strange and surreal place. As he searches for a way out, he discovers a myriad of strange, intriguing, and frightening characters, who ultimately lead him to complete the greatest journey of them all: growing up. A fantastical trip through a strange landscape that explores the changing perspective of a young boy facing adulthood. As surreal as Alice in Wonderland, with a powerful truth underneath it all. This beautifully illustrated, watercolored tale will make readers long for the simplicity of youth while embracing the wonderful complexities of adulthood: Responsibility, Love, Consequence, and ultimately the shocking, inevitable realities of Life and Death. Written by Pierre Paquet, this honest portrayal of a moment from his own life will take readers to a land of contemplation and adventure.
