Mrs. & Mr. MacLeod, authors of the award-winning How to Eat a Book, present a whimsical, thought-provoking picture book about coming face-to-face with the unknown. Beautifully illustrated and lyrically written, The Door That Had Never Been Opened Before has strong read-aloud appeal for families, libraries, booksellers, and educators.
The Grunions' house had many doors. But there was one door, that had never been opened before
The door that had never been opened before was built closed shut, locked tight, and never opened for a reason. A reason that nobody knew.
Geraldine opened every door she ever found. Geraldine opened every door and went everywhere and met everyone and did EVERYTHING. Everything, except ONE THING. Geraldine had never opened the Door that had NEVER been opened before . . . NOT yet The Door That Had Never Been Opened Before is a contemporary look at a timeless question--with hints of Shel Silverstein and a smattering of Edward Gorey. Fantastically illustrated with dipped pen-and-ink cutout art, photographed in a three-dimensional stage diorama and hand-colored, this children's picture book is a HIT from the talented Mrs. & Mr. MacLeod.
