about

“In the world, there are different kinds of people,” opens Up Above and Down Below. The ones on the top think the ones on the bottom are different. The ones down below they think the ones up above are different. But what if they all turned themselves upside down? Would everyone find that they’re all the same, except in a few small ways? 

Through award-winning translator Susan Ouriou, author-illustrator Paloma Valdivia explores this complex philosophical question and encourages young readers to appreciate the differences among people as well as their similarities. The short sentences and stylized, surreal illustrations will draw readers into the whimsical worlds of up above and down below, delighting and enlightening them as they complete their tour.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a very simple look at how people from different places are not so dissimilar, aimed at young children - it's a perfect starting place, especially for a group, for it doesn't get into specifics at all…Instead, it keeps things light…quirky illustrations with a nice degree of whimsy." - Alice Moore - Shelf Candy - 20130106
