Shadow by Suzy Lee
Illustrated by Suzy Lee

     Click! The light goes on in the attic and a girl turns on her imagination as she starts to play with the shadows of old toys, boxes and discarded household tools.  Shadow is an amazing book!  Its pages are meant to be looked at in landscape orientation; they open horizontally allowing the crease of the book to become a physical division between the girl's real world on the top page and the world of shadows on the bottom.  Eventually, her imagination brings the shadows to life and soon the two "worlds" become one.  There is no text and it doesn't need it.  This is the kind of book you'll want to own and look at over and over again.
