A dreamworld where it rains fish instead of water, people dance through dinner, and children sleep with tigers–welcome to the imagination of author/artist Leif Parsons, whose detailed dreamscapes make ONLY FISH FALL FROM THE SKY a charming bedtime book sure to fascinate young readers and their parents. Join Leif Parsons from 3:30 to 5:30 PM on 5/17 at The POWERHOUSE Arena for a celebration of his art.
About Only Fish Fall From the Sky:
In Only Fish Fall From the Sky, a boy wakes from a marvelous dream to find the world is not quite as he left it; raindrops are falling from the sky, instead of fish, when everyone knows that only fish fall from the sky! Is he asleep or awake? Kids can decide for themselves which world they prefer as they pore over the detailed dreamscapes of author/illustrator Leif Parsons.
Movement infuses every inch of Parsons’ elaborate illustrations, enticing young readers to linger over each spread to discover such kid-friendly surprises as kangaroos jumping double-dutch, a giant nose poking out of a city window, or a squirrel taking meticulous notes. Leif Parsons’ elaborate creation is sure to capture the interest of preschoolers and young readers with boundless imaginations.
