Jihyeon Lee

A New York Times Editors' Choice Book!
This remarkable wordless picture book bursts with buoyant energy as a boy finds the key to a long-unopened door and makes his way from drabness to a joyful, magical land." - The New York Times Book Review

What's on the other side of the door? There's only one way to find out: You have to go through it. JiHyeon Lee's debut book, Pool, was lauded as a wordless masterpiece. Here she takes readers on another journey into an unexpected world-without words. Delicate, intricate, and whimsical drawings transform from grays to vivid color as a curious child goes through a mysterious door and discovers that open-mindedness is the key to adventure and friendship. Using magical realism, this book reminds us not to fear others.

JiHyeon Lee's first book, Pool, was a New York Times Notable Children's Book of the Year, an ALA Notable, a USBBY Outstanding International Book, an NPR Best Book of the Year, and won the Society of Illustrators Gold Medal for Original Art.
