KIRKUS REVIEW

 From a promising new illustrator, a wordless book depicting the flight of a man wafted aloft by his umbrella. Before the wind sets him down again, he has visited sea and shore, city and forest, and various kinds of transportation, all viewed, from imaginative angles, in the muted tones induced by the weather. But most interesting here are the beautifully crafted, exquisitely composed watercolors, skillfully evoking mist, light, and the very feel and smell of a rainy day; while the book is quiet, Chesworth achieves a real narrative flow, both visually and conceptually. (Picture book. 3-7)
