Radical Visions: Five Picture Books by Peter Sis.
Latham, Don
Children's Literature in Education, v31 n3 p179-93 Sep 2000
Examines five picture books by author/illustrator Peter Sis, and how they deal explicitly with people who through extraordinary journeys develop extraordinary ways of seeing the world. Discusses use of paratextual elements, multiple formats, multiple layers of narrative, and a merging of texts and pictures. Suggests ways these books might be used with younger and older readers.
