THE ROCK FROM THE SKY, by Jon Klassen, Candlewick Press, April 13, 2021, Hardcover, $18.99 (ages 4-8)
Jon Klassen returns with his familiar deadpan humor in his latest picture book, The Rock from the Sky.
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.
—Synopsis provided by Candlewick Press
If you’ve read any of Klassen’s award-winning hat trilogy, then you should already have an idea of what to expect from The Rock from the Sky. Simple, but effective illustrations and sparse, tongue-in-cheek text and surprises sprinkled throughout compose a wry tale children will love.
