I love wordless picture books. There is something about relying on great artwork to tell an entire story that makes me happy. The illustrations in The Line are simple in design and color scheme, yet still deliver all the information needed to tell a sweet story.
The book is so cute. I love the artwork, I love the story, and I love the brilliant way the artist delivered them both.
