The Ring

by Lisa Maizlish

Published by Greenwillow, 1996
32 pages
ISBN: 0-688-14217-6

Ages 3 - 5

The drabness of a gray late autumn or end-of-winter day bursts into color and light when a young boy finds a small, magical plastic ring in the park. In moments, his mood and his world are transformed, winter clothes are shed, and the child flies high over the New York City skyline. Lisa Maizlish's debut picture book is told through beautifully composed photographs that shift from black-and-white to color as the dizzying wordless fantasy unfolds. Her skillful use of both photographic mediums, as well as digital enhancement techniques, shifts the story's tone with subtle yet dazzling results in a book that will capture young children's emotions and send their imaginations soaring.
