  • The Ladder

    The Ladder
    A curious ladder inadvertently becomes a pathway to the clouds in this droll, interactive translation of an enchanting Danish poem. So first it did a little dance, then it did a little prance, then, as nicely as you please, it waddled off with stiff red knees. Once there was a jaunty ladder, abandoned by a mysterious carpenter, that sprung to life and decided to take a trip through the countryside. As time passed, the gentle ladder found itself intrigued by a seriesof encounters with people and animals that climbed it to the top and disappeared into the sky, only to return, one by one, in a triumphant parade at the end. This exquisite edition of THE LADDER, the text of which was originally written by renowned Danish poet Halfdan Rasmussen, combines a translation by award-winning author and poet Marilyn Nelson with simple, striking artwork by Pierre Pratt, featuring several foldouts and partial pages in a charming, whimsical design.
