Littlelight

Kelly Canby

When bricks start to go missing from the town of Littlelight, the mayor whips his citizens into a frenzy of aggravation. But when the townspeople find the thief, and her motive, they discover perhaps it is the mayor who is the problem. Illustrated in moody black and white with dynamic neon highlights, this is a thought-provoking tale of tolerance and acceptance.

With this work, author–illustrator Canby further confirms her reputation as an innovative and thought-provoking storyteller
