About Author-Illustrator Mags DeRoma & the Book!
In a big, big city
on a busy street
at the tipity-top of a tall building
lives a girl.
One night, after a story,
and one last sip of water,
she was getting sleepy...when out of the corner of her eye...
\\ () //
The girl was no longer sleepy. Now, she was...AWAKE.
In a brilliant debut, Mags DeRoma gives us an empowered young child who is trying to solve the biggest problem she's ever faced: how to get the spider out of her room without actually having to go near it.
With bold cut-paper art, Awake is sure to stay with readers for a long time.
Mags DeRoma is an artist and storyteller. She makes, writes, designs, draws, paints, and builds thoughtful works, many of them for a young (but discerning) audience. Awake is her debut picture book.
