In text that rolls out as elegantly as a poem and is as perfectly paced as a mystery, an unassuming narrator interrogates the elastic nature of time through a series of questions and comparisons, capturing both a parent's desire to freeze time and a child's desire to linger just a minute longer. Those seconds that count in catching the bus. The idyllic hours that slip by so quickly during a perfect day on the lake. The summer days that disappear into blissful happiness. Part Virginia Lee Burton, part Margaret Wise Brown, this book's musings on time are at once simple, peaceful, and profound-the work, clearly, of a truly genius picture bookmaker.
