"[Flatland], vibrant with imagery reminiscent of aboriginal dream time paintings, simply and reassuringly addresses loss. An abstract cellular-like speck named Owuza arrives in Flatland and begins to grow and learn, becoming more colorful and complex as he responds to his environment and to the friends he meets. When Owuza eventually leaves for whatever lies beyond Flatland's 'edges and endings, ' his friends find that he remains a part of them and they realize that they, too, can see beyond endings and 'reach past the edges of Flatland.'" --Parents' Choice Awards, Recommended Book "Fans of Rebecca Emberley's artwork will recognize the effective design of colorful scenes (as if from roughly cut pieces of construction paper) from her earlier books. ... Flatland is a touching tale that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults." --San Francisco Book Review
