Hussenot, Victor. The Land of Lines. Chronicle. 2015. $12.99. unp. 978-1-4521-4282-1. Ages 4-8. P7Q7
Simple lines of blue (boy) and red (girl) show the lost children meeting in a land of angular terrain where the yellow monster captures the girl. In the wordless story filled with action, the boy saves the girl, and the couple help another lost boy find his way home. Originally published in Switzerland in 2014, the book is delightful, but the relationship shows a girl dependent on the boy who deserts her in the end.
