K-Gr 3—Picking up exactly where The Red Book leaves off, the boy who finds the mysterious red book at the end of that story takes it home to examine it in this one. Wordless panels show him looking through the pages at the islands that fans of the first tale will recognize, zooming in until he sees a girl fishing in a boat and finding the red book in the water. When she opens the book, she finds pages revealing the boy in his room. Illustrating the power of a book to connect, she uses her intuition (and a baguette and a seagull) to find her way out of the narrative and to her new friend's door who, in his excitement, drops the red book. The smart, clean art with smooth bold lines offers so much to observe and puzzle through while telling the complex story effortlessly without the use of text. This title stands alone but pairing it with the first work makes it all the more magical, particularly because the end brings the story into a breathtaking circle. The final page showing a girl finding the lost red book in the snow is from the beginning of the previous volume, deepening the intrigue around the red book and its time sequence while providing many opportunities for discussion and creative thinking. VERDICT Whether being explored for pleasure or for academic purposes, this title will add value to any library collection, especially ones that have copies of its predecessor.—Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA

★ "Lehman gives readers the satisfaction of learning more about the original story while leaving them with more to ponder. Together, the two volumes form a pleasing and perplexing Möbius strip of a story." –Publishers Weekly, starred review
★ "... A twist ending that will blow many young minds (and some not-so-young ones, as well). " –Booklist, starred review
"A peaceful, wordless adventure that, as the final frames hint, will continue after it's closed." —Kirkus

Red Again tells a story with only illustrations, no words. It’s a great way for author Barbara Lehman to get across a message about the power books have to connect us in unexpected ways. Through books children are able to make friends and get to know each other.
Because there are no words, there is opportunity to make up a story to go with the illustrations, and children should have fun bringing their own imaginations into play. The story also continues with a girl finding a red book of her own and so the adventure goes on.
With its glossy red cover and simple watercolor illustrations, Red Again will have children and their parents flipping pages back and forth to see where the stories of the children in the book connect and wanting to see how the book ties them together.
The publisher provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
What if you were reading a book about someone and that someone was reading about you? Can worlds collide? You be the judge.
For me, I believe that they can.
