The Wall in the Middle of the Book

Jon AgeeClick here for biography

A little knight is very happy that his wall protects him from the dangers that are sure to lurk on the other side. However, he is too busy mending a hole in his wall to notice the mounting dangers on his own side.

Praise for this book:

As ever, Agee nails pacing and punch lines, making inventive use of the famous fourth wall as a literary device (and giving the book a new wall altogether). Most satisfying is his gentle reminder that preconceived notions about things and people, over a boundary or otherwise, are often distinctly wrong.' Publishers Weekly, starred review

'With too much attention toward outward threats, the knight neglects to see those from within—a timeless message but also one that, in 2018, will surely strike a chord with many readers.' Kirkus, starred review

'The message that walls don't help us understand our neighbors will stick.' Booklist, starred review
