In the first reading experience of its kind, blast off on a journey through twenty-six feet of continuous vertical art, which reads beautifully no matter which cover you start from. Begin at one end, and you're on the ocean floor; follow a creature along a bright yellow trail up into deep space to his alien family's embrace.

Whether journeying home or heading to bed, enjoy a satisfying and surprising trip from rising star Frank Viva.
