The Rock From The Sky by Jon Klassen

A new book from Jon Klassen, author-illustrator of I Want My Hat Back, is always a cause for excitement. Jon is back with a new deadpan Gem, The Rock From The Sky, a book that is sure to have you laughing and pondering simultaneously! 

There is a spot.

It is a good spot.

It is the perfect spot to stand.

There is no reason to ever leave.

But somewhere above there is also a rock.

A rock from the sky!

Turtle really likes standing in his favourite spot. He likes it so much that he asks his friend Armadillo to come over and stand in it, too. But now that Armadillo is standing in that spot, he has a bad feeling about it.

A hilarious meditation on the workings of friendship, fate, shared futuristic visions, and that funny feeling you get that there's something off somewhere, but you just can't put your finger on it. Merging broad visual suspense with wry wit and existential silliness, Jon Klassen gives us a wholly original comedy for the ages.
