Below by Nina Crews

Rating: ★★★★

Genre: Children’s Lit

Medium: Hardcover

Synopsis: Jack and Guy are inseparable…that is, until Guy accidentally falls down a hole in the stairs.  And down below, he’s all alone…or is he?

Review: I absolutely love Nina Crews’ use of photography and illustration.  She constructs illustrations in such a neat way that I’ve rarely seen others do.  In Below, she tells the tale of Jack, who accidentally drops Guy down a hole in the stairs and must figure out how to get him out.  While Guy is down below in the dark, Jack imagines all sorts of adventures Guy might be having without him.  And the way that Jack’s imagination gets illustrated rather than photographed??  LOVE IT.  She’s a master at her style, and I can’t wait to get my hands on more of her books!
