Revue de presse

*"This outstanding visual treat about the open road will inspire readers, whether on three wheels or two, to pedal faster and farther."―School Library Journal (starred review)

"Eccentric and peculiar, but handsome, too."―Booklist

"Great fun to look at; kids will feel the speed of the bike and the there-ness of place."―Kirkus Reviews

"It's the kind of book that creates a mood rather than telling a story, evoking the freedom of traveling, the joy of movement, and the exhilaration of being outside."―Publishers Weekly

Présentation de l'éditeur

Follow that road!

Speed off on an eventful bicycle ride along the bold yellow road that cuts through town, by the sea, and through the country. Ride up and around, along and through, out and down.

Frank's striking graphic style is executed in just five joyous colors, and his spare, rhythmic language is infectious.

HASH(0x9b801198) étoiles sur 5 STUNNING AND UNIQUE! This work deserves more than the five stars I am able to assign it. 21 juin 2011
Par D. Blankenship - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
When it comes to children's literature it is becoming more and more difficult to find something that you can truly call "different;" something unique that grabs you and causes you to say to yourself, "Good grief, I've never seen anything quite like this before." Considering that illustrated children's books, in one fashion or another have been with us since at least the 15th or 16th century, the likelihood of producing something absolutely new is quite small.

Well, Frank Viva has come pretty near creating a completely new work here. Yes, there are books out there where some of the elements of this work can be found, but Viva has taken many of these elements and come-up with something that I feel is truly a bit different.

This is the story of a man on a bicycle trip; a short day trip really, or just a trip from home to perhaps his office and then back home. The starting point and the ending point really matter little in this case as it is the journey that counts; it is what this simple story is about. A man begins his journey on his bike. He followings a never ending road though the countryside, through small villages, goes by the sea, through tunnels, across bridges, into the big city, though neighborhoods and then beyond. He starts but really, never finishes...and if he does finish, well.....

The author has used a yellow road; a twisting, turning, up and down road that connects each frame of the book. The illustrations are really all one very long and large picture of the man's journey. It is really rather difficult to describe, but I assure you it is absolutely delightful. These illustrations are accompanied by a wonderfully simple text...short two, three and four word entries that have an almost hypnotic effect and most certainly can be classified and mellow.

"Along a long road
gaining speed
and again and again
Around a round bend
near the end........"

Each of the above lines are a line of text which are placed on one page; one part of the overall illustration.

And the illustration! My, oh my! The author/artist has used precisely five colors throughout the entire book with jet black being the primary back ground color; the back ground on which the road runs. The lines are simple, precise and the colors have not been blended, but whether they are straight or curved, they simply flow. The illustrator has a very quirky eye and apparently views life though a different lens than most of us.

This is an ideal book to read to or with a child. As the rider passes though on his journey the sights he sees and the different scenes that pass, leave so very many side stories that the adult reader can use with the child as this work is being read. With the simple act of passing through a village, with a river and ship in the background, At least five side stories that I can tell a child passed through my mind...this was on just two frames!

This work is a visual treat, a mellow read, a pure delight for eye and ear and imagination. This is one you most certainly will want to add to your child's library.

The author and illustrator of this work has had work that has appeared on the cover o the New Yorker and his work has appeared in the New York Times, Boston Globe and Time Magazine. This is his first children's book...amazing and how remarkable.

HASH(0x9bfd1e34) étoiles sur 5 Take a ride 'Along a Long Road' 22 juillet 2011
Par Jessica at Cracking the Cover - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Roads wind through towns, across countrysides and through cities. They are what connect people to each other.

In "Along a Long Road" by Frank Viva, readers follow a never-ending road from page to page without a break. The road, highlighted in yellow and with a smooth texture, stands out as it winds across the pages.

The road crosses through trees, under power lines, around a small town, into a tunnel, over a bridge and going really, really fast.

Limited to primary colors, the illustrations here are graphic in nature and play to the movement of the winding road. And the physical texture of the road is a nice touch. Unfortunately the review copy I received, the UV coating was not completely dry when the book was assembled and it stuck together, leaving a tear near the spine. It's a small tear, however, and only slightly detracts from the book as a whole.

There's little text to "Along a Long Road," but it's really not needed. It's a fun little book that children will appreciate for its movement and that parents will appreciate for its artistic merit.

HASH(0x9b8013f0) étoiles sur 5 The picture rare book that is perfect for young babies 15 avril 2012
Par Bunny B - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I found this book while searching some new picture books for my 7 month old son...At an age where he has become mobile and opinionated seemingly overnight, the other picture books in his library, which were once so easy to read to him when he was the perfect, captive audience a few months ago, now seemed to test his patience and interest with their lengthy text and muted colors (except the great Dr. Seuss of course). Furthermore, I find most board books for babies his age to be TOO simple and lacking in terms of illustration and design...Thus, I was excited to find "Along a Long Road" and even more delighted when it became my son's first ever favorite book! The illustrations are high-contrast with pops of color & the story is just-right in terms of length for the infant-toddler range...I look forward to more from Frank Viva down the road;)

I bought this book because I thought the art was cool. I didn't think my 2 year old would really like it because the story seemed boring at first. I was wrong. He loves the simple story and quirky style. Plus the story works on two levels - biking journey and life journey (hit a bump, get up, keep on going). Additionally, there are many little details that can be discussed on each page as the cyclist passes through different scenes. We also discuss concepts like how the cyclist goes fast down the hill and slow up the hills.

HASH(0x9b5f1dbc) étoiles sur 5 Wonderful 4 juillet 2011
Par Steven R. McEvoy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This first book by award winning Toronto graphic designer is breathtaking. This book is illustrated with in a very limited pallet, predominantly in black and light yellow and blue. The only other colors are red, mainly for the riders jersey, and brown for the road. The people have a slightly surrealistic look but the background and skylines are simple yet evocative illustrations. Children will love the fun illustrations yet they are of such a quality adults will not bore of reading the book over and over again. We enjoyed this one greatly and look forward to more books by Viva in the future.
