The three-time Caldecott Medal-winner's (Flotsam, Tuesday, and The Three Pigs) first solo book, Free Fall is even more than it seems. When a young boy falls asleep, his dreams come alive with images from his nighttime read. A wordless book with spectacular double-page spreads by Wiesner throughout, it was only when I saw an exhibition on this title that I realized that the illustrations make one continuous panorama if arranged end to end. A 1989 Caldecott Honor Book in Fine condition in a Fine dust jacket.
