When Iris's elevator button-pushing is disrupted by a new member of the family, she's pretty put out.
That is, until the sudden appearance of a mysterious new button opens up entire realms of possibility, places where she can escape and explore on her own. But when it becomes a question between going it alone or letting someone else tag along, Iris finds that sharing a discovery with the people you love can be the most wonderful experience of all.
This is a story that will lift your spirits and expand your imagination, by the award-winning creators of Drawn Together.
A Summer 2020 Kids' Indie Next List
The Boston Globe Best Books of 2020
"This second collaboration by the award-winning team of Lê and Santat touches that sweet spot between children's 'anywhere but here' longings and the everyday joys and heartaches of sibling rivalry."―The New York Times
* "Styled like a graphic novel's, the illustrations focus on Iris' feelings as she imagines a new elevator button, one that she can control, with the magical ability to transport her to other worlds. Frustration, invention, escape, wonder -- all move across the pages with immediacy. Like Sendak's Max, Iris uses anger to lift her away from the real world into jungles and outer space. And she returns to her room changed. Breaking the bounds of a traditional picture book, Iris' creative growth elevates us all."―Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* "Beautiful art enhances an uplifting story that encourages readers to share secret wonders with one another -- even annoying kid siblings."―School Library Journal, starred review
* "The story is beautifully told through Santat's expressive characters and dynamic panels of sequential art..... [It's] an entirely immersive experience that children will reach for, again and again, like their own magic button."―Booklist, starred review
* "An excellent choice for individual consumption or as a read-aloud, this story is sure to get creative juices flowing."―School Library Connection, starred review
* "Santat's comedic versatility and theatrical use of light give the story cinematic momentum, while Lê's insight into Iris's conflicting emotions adds depth and warmth to the tale."―Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Uplifting."―The Horn Book
"A magic elevator button brings two siblings together in this uplifting picture book reminiscent of a graphic novel."―Shelf Awareness
"Magic happens here, through a few words and vibrant illustrations that capture emotions common to kids finding their place in a family and a community."―Common Sense Media
"The story itself makes a kid-appealing metaphor about leaving the familiarities of baby and toddlerhood behind for new, exciting adventures."―BCCB
