From much-lauded artist Laura Ljungkvist, whose Follow the Line series earned praise for its clean, Scandinavian style and ingenious premise, comes a playful board book perfect for the toddler and pre-K set, and sure to please parents who are fans of modern design.
Starting on the front cover, and winding its way across each page to the end, a single line forms different shapes that demonstrate opposites ("clean" or "messy") in Ljungkvist's signature modern style. Children can follow the playful and ingenious line, which winds its way across brightly colored and patterned pages, till it ultimately forms "you" and "me," for a warmly charming ending. Laura Ljungkvist has developed a fan base as the author and illustrator of numerous children's titles, including the award-winning series Follow the Line (Viking, 2006-2011),Pepi Sings a New Song(Beach Lane, 2010) and, most recently, as the illustrator of Mem Fox'sYoo-Hoo, Lady Bug(Beach Lane, 2013).
Laura Ljungkvist was born, raised, educated (Grundis/RMI-Gerghs) and started her career in Sweden. As a free-lance illustrator she worked with a variety of clients in many different fields in Stockholm. In 1993 Laura moved to New York City where she quickly established herself and found work doing illustrations for high-end department stores, magazines and newspapers.
