Nothing Ever Happens on a Gray DayChronicle Books
With fantastic bursts of color and lyricism, Grant Snider explores the extraordinary within the ordinary in this ode to seemingly boring days and the wonders that emerge for anyone open to seeing them.
The day is gloomy and the world feels like it's asleep . . . but perhaps all that's required for adventure is a bit of curiosity and patience. After all, an everyday stroll can become an adventure in the blink of an eye. On a day when even the rain is too bored to fall, ride alongside a girl on her rickety bicycle through the familiar scenes of her neighborhood as she rediscovers the colors - a splash of yellow, a flash of red, a flutter of blue - that can be found even on a monochrome day.
In this story that celebrates do-nothing days and solitary adventures, readers learn how embracing the quiet stillness of a gray day with openness and curiosity can make space for unexpected encounters, meaningful detours, and some of life's most unforgettable moments. With luminous illustrations that practically glow on the page, Grant Snider takes readers on a visual journey they'll want to return to again and again.
