Wonderful children’s wordless picture books!

A girl goes skating and makes lines on the ice, she is drawing as she falls the paper she is drawn on is screwed up or did she fall because the paper was screwed up?

Then it is flattened and others help her up and skate with her, this is also reflected in the drawing as the screwed up page echoes the ice used by many in contrast to the perfect flat paper at the start of the book where the girl alone made lines on the fresh ice.

These are beautiful drawings.
