A seemingly ordinary park transforms into somewhere new and wonderful in this enthralling ode to first adventures from acclaimed author Robie H. Harris and fine artist Armando Mariño.
Somewhere is where I wanted to go. Somewhere new. Somewhere I had never, ever been before.
A young girl and her father walk through familiar streets on a brilliant, sun-drenched day. When they reach a park, the girl lets go of her father’s hand. It is time for her to journey out on her own. As her father keeps watch, she finds an unfamiliar place—an extraordinary forest that blooms around her, lush and larger than life. She plays among gigantic leaves, discovers treasures, and thinks of how her father would love this place, too. She retraces her steps to a happy reunion with her father and a recounting of her exploration. Brought to life in soft, vibrant watercolors by renowned Cuban artist Armando Mariño, this lyrical story by Robie H. Harris captures the magic of a child finding her inner strength and curiosity—and discovering somewhere new all on her own.
