The Rock from the Sky

author/illustrator: Jon Klassen

There is a spot.
It is a good spot.
It is the perfect spot to stand.
There is no reason to ever leave.
But somewhere above there is also a rock.
A rock from the sky.

Here comes The Rock from the Sky, a hilarious meditation on the workings of friendship, fate, shared futuristic visions, and that funny feeling you get that thereís something off somewhere, but you just canít put your finger on it. Merging broad visual suspense with wry wit, celebrated picture book creator Jon Klassen gives us a wholly original comedy for the ages.

The instant #1 New York Times bestseller!

Look up! From the Caldecott MedalĖwinning creator of the hat trilogy comes a new deadpan gem.
