The Bramble by Lee Nordling and Bruce Zick
From the publisher- "In this beautifully illustrated and mostly wordless book, Cameron isn't small, but he's not exactly big. He's not slow, but he's also not quick. He wants friends, but it never quite seems to work out. And in a game of tag, he's going to end up "it." Or at least that's how things are on this side of the Bramble. On the other side, it's a different story. On the other side of the Bramble, something extraordinary can happen, something that changes everything."
This book is different than most. It is set up like a comic book but does not have words. Without words it was a little difficult for us to follow the story. A creative person would probably love this book as they can interpret it however they want too. I am sure a teacher can do the same to make it fit in with his or her lesson plans.
Review from my five year old son-"This book is not so good. The pictures are very scary!"
