Written by Tom Haviv and illustrated by Sibba Hartunian.
Woven centers on two girls who live in a town where everyone's hair is braided together. Their stories are similarly woven together, and the narrative and design reflect that: the book can be opened from either side and the characters' journeys connect at the book's center.
In their journeys, Lyla and Phyla reflect on their differing experiences of the world, and the special senses they’ve gained through them. With vibrant illustrations that jump off the page and a unique concept that addresses ideas of both community and independence, Woven helps us remember that no matter how alone we might sometimes feel, we’re all truly connected.
Forthcoming in spring 2018.
