A copy of this book as provided by the publisher in exchange for my honest review 

It starts with a line. Whether made by the tip of a pencil
or the blade of a skate, the magic starts there.

And magic once again flows from the pencil and imagination of internationally acclaimed artist Suzy Lee. With the lightest of touches, this masterwork blurs the lines between real and imagined, reminding us why Lee's books have been lauded around the world, recognized on New York Times Best Illustrated Books lists and nominated for the Hans Christian Andersen Award, the highest international honor given to children's book creators. 

This seemingly simple story about a young skater on a frozen pond will charm the youngest of readers while simultaneously astounding book enthusiasts of any age.

Visually stunning, Suzy Lee's newest, wordless book is a treasure to have through the winter months. I absolutely loved feeling like I was transported into a wintery scene with the story's ice-skater. This book illustrates a powerful message about not giving up despite mistakes. The end result is stunning. Definitely another Suzy Lee classic that readers of all ages will enjoy. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
