Hike

By Pete Oswald

Take to the trails for a celebration of nature – and a day spent with Dad.

In the cool and quiet early light of morning, a father and child wake up. Today they’re going on a hike. Follow the duo into the mountains as they witness the magic of the wilderness, overcome challenges, and play a small role in the survival of the forest. By the time they return home, they feel alive – and closer than ever – as they document their hike and take their place in family history. In detail-rich panels and textured panoramas, Pete Oswald perfectly paces this nearly wordless adventure, allowing readers to pause for subtle wonders and marvel at the views. A touching tribute to the bond between father and child, with resonant themes for Earth Day, Hike is a breath of fresh air.

'The extremely sparing use of text focuses the reader on the illustrations. These are beautifully done, using a range of mute d greens, browns , greys, and blues. However, more importantly , it celebrates the relationship an d connection between father and son.' The School Librarian
