In this clever wordless comic, Lee Nordling’s simple storytelling engages young readers and provides a gateway into understanding multiple perspectives and points of view.

“Readers can follow each story individually or read all three gradually intertwining tales together and imagine their own dialogue and narration. . . . The book ends with a neat twist on gender expectations that could spark meaningful discussions.”—Booklist
“Readers will enjoy trying to make sense of this story while they appreciate just how differently boys and girls play. . . . [T]here’s something for everyone in this thrice-told tale.”—Kirkus Reviews
