Synopsis

Take a look around you. No matter where you turn, you'll see something being delivered--from the newspaper that gets tossed onto the front step each morning, to the pyramid of cans in the grocery store; from the flowers in the marketplace, to the gasoline at the filling station. Just how did everything get where it is? It was all delivered, of course! By land, sea or air, by driver, messenger, or postal worker, in the city or the country, someone somewhere is making a delivery right now. A simple, rhythmic text and exuberantly colored illustrations invite young readers to take a look at the deliveries occurring all around them., The more they look, the more they'll see!

Anastasia Suen and Wade Zahares' most recent picture book from Viking, Window Music, was deemed "a magical excursion" by Publishers Weekly and was named a New York Times Best Illustrated book.
