Edwards, Wallace.

Out of the blue / Wallace Edwards. - Toronto, ON : North Winds Press, an imprint of Scholastic Canada Ltd., 2018. - 1 v. (unpaged) : chiefly col. ill. ; 29 cm.

"Two strangers, as different as can be, find understanding and unexpected friendship when they work together. Ernest is flying his kite when it gets stuck in a tree. At the same moment, there's a flash in the sky, followed by a loud crash. He sets out on a difficult journey up a mountain to find out what happened. Shocked by what he sees at the top, Ernest at first hides in fear. But he soon begins to see that the creature he thought was a monster is someone who needs help. They find ways to understand one another, and solve their problems together. In the end, there are no more strangers, only friends. Told in spare text and perfectly paced art in panels and full pages, this visually rich story brings through themes that are both timely and perennial -- to challenge first impressions, to find strength in difference, and to see important needs we share."--
