A sleepy little girl in striped pajamas and her canine companion are about to curl up in bed when an unwanted visitor appears – a spider! The offending arachnid watches innocently as the girl – now wide awake – works herself into a frenzy plotting its demise. The spider is scary, but the girl perseveres and finds a way to scoop up her tiny visitor without harming him. DeRoma’s papercut art forms a cozy bedroom space that emphasizes the spider’s petiteness, reminding us that we need not fear something just because it is ‘different’.
Mags DeRoma is an artist and storyteller. She makes, writes, designs, draws, paints, and builds thoughtful works, many of them for a young (but discerning) audience. Awake is her debut picture book.
