Sector 7

by David Wiesner

Published by Clarion, 1999
48 pages
ISBN: 0-395-74656-6

Ages 4 - 9

On a class visit to the Empire State Building, a young boy gets separated from his peers and unknowingly crosses the line between fantasy and reality. A small cloud befriends him and whisks him away to a building known as Sector 7. There, stern bureaucrats submit their boring sketches of proper cloud shapes and launch the same old, amorphous, cumulus masses into the skies over Manhattan. Our hero and his cloud friend, however, have other ideas. The boy's sketches of fish catch on quickly among the clouds -- much to the frustration of the bureaucrats. David Wiesner's detailed watercolor paintings tell the whole story in this original, funny, wordless book. CCBC categories: Picture Books for Older Children  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
