Description

Richard can’t stop thinking about the clock. He lies in bed each night listening to its tick-tocking, to the pendulum’s heavy swing. Why does his granddad open its old doors in secret and walk into the darkness beyond? One night, too inquisitive to sleep, Richard tiptoes from his bed, opens the cherry wood doors, and steps inside . . .

Publisher Review

Shortlisted for the Slate 2013 Cartoonist Studio Prize "Map of Days is a story that calls for multiple readings to share all of the nuances of the legend behind Earth's tides. It's a story that keeps readers at arm's length, and yet forces them to recognize the difficult decisions the boy is tasked with making. There are no easy decisions or moments for the boy in this book, and the story becomes a meditation on learning to accept that there are consequences to every action we take." -All The Wonders "Fascinating, tragic, strange, and composed of very basic emotions like curiosity, sympathy, guilt, and acceptance, Map of Days is a truly unique work with art as compelling and complex as the subject matter." -Comicon.com "A visually arresting book, full of color and surreal landscapes." -Biblioteca Aesthetica
