"In the world, there are different kinds of people," opens "Up Above and Down Below." The ones on the top think the ones on the bottom are different. The ones down below they think the ones up above are different. But what if they all turned themselves upside down? Would everyone find that they're all the same, except in a few small ways? Through award-winning translator Susan Ouriou, author-illustrator Paloma Valdivia explores this complex philosophical question and encourages young readers to appreciate the differences among people as well as their similarities. The short sentences and stylized, surreal illustrations will draw readers into the whimsical worlds of up above and down below, delighting and enlightening them as they complete their tour.

"In the world, there are different kinds of people. Some live up above and some live down below." from the book" -In the world, there are different kinds of people. Some live up above and some live down below.- -- from the book -A gentle and well-designed introduction to recognizing different points of view - and a reminder that people are the same wherever they live.- Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW, May 28, 2012 -A visually stunning, gently restrained picture book that should be high up on readers' lists.- Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW, July 15, 2012 -A great story-starter for many disciplines. It can be used to introduce little ones to the concept of social studies, geography, and even the curious law of gravity.- Picture Book Depot, September 6, 2012 -Broader lessons are left to be intuited, something to ponder over juice box and Goldfish. Valdivia's deceptively simple illustrations also merit further exploration.- Bruce Handy, The New York Times, August 27, 2012 "A gentle and well-designed introduction to recognizing different points of view - and a reminder that people are the same wherever they live."
