The Wall in the Middle of the Book

Jon Agee

Scallywag Press

A foolish knight is certain that his side of the wall is the safe side in this clever, amusing and timely picture book. 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. Luckily he is rescued by one of the ‘baddies’ on the other side, and finds out that the other side of the wall is actually a much pleasanter place to be.

Selling points

  • Jon Agee is brilliant in his use of the page turn, visual storytelling, and deadpan humour. His books have won starred reviews and medals galore in his native country, America.
  • Playful use of the book’s gutter where the knight cannot see the other side of the wall whereas the reader can.
  • A persuasive allegory about the folly of prejudice and xenophobia.
  • Plenty of funny details and secondary visual storylines to notice as you read the book a second, third, and tenth time.
