Synopsis

Palazzo Inverso by D.B. Johnson

Mauk, mischievous apprentice to the master architect, mustn't draw on the plans for the new Palazzo. But by moving the plans a bit each day, he finds a way to alter them, turning the master's creation onto its head! Discover what mystery and excitement a small change of perspective has brought to the Palazzo. In this masterpiece D. B. Johnson pushes the picture book to new extremes. With it's continuous narrative and illustrations that can be viewed upside down, readers can turn the book over on page thirty-two and read all the way back to page one. Enter the Palazzo Inverso...and see if you can find your way out.

Reviews

An undeniably impressive bit of optical trickery with an even neater narrative flip at the conclusion. - Booklist

About the Author

D.B. Johnson has been a freelance illustrator for more than twenty years, during which time he has drawn upon the influence and philosophy of Henry David Thoreau to create the highly-acclaimed, bestselling Henry series. In a similar fashion, Palazzo Inverso is inspired by the work of M. C. Escher, whose ideas and drawings of impossible buildings with multiple points of view, tesselations, reflections, continuous loops, and interlocking positive and negative space have been fascinating spectators since the mid-1900s. D.B. Johnson and his wife, Linda Michelin, live in New Hampshire.
