Shapes moving in every direction,
letters weaving in and out,
bright colors jumping off of the wall.
It was like a language from another
planet that only I could understand.
In this bright, colorful, and movement-filled picture book, a young girl moves with her family from the big city to a small town. She feels odd and out of place until a stroll down the street hits her with echoes from home: vibrant graffiti splashed against the wall. But when it's painted over that sense of belonging is lost, until an afternoon's adventure shows her that street art can be found everywhere—as well as a sense of home.
In his exceptional author-illustrated debut, Theodore Taylor III has crafted an ode to street art, a stunning celebration of a much-maligned art form and all the beauty it brings to a neighborhood.
