Lift by Minh Lê; illustrated by Dan Santat. 2020. Published by Hyperion.
Brief summary: Iris’s job is to push the lift’s button for her family every day until one time her little brother surprisingly does it. She does not like that. The next time the family stands in front of the elevator, Iris darts out front and pushes the button for it to arrive and then all of the buttons inside of the elevator. A few days later, she notices that the maintenance man is fixing a broken elevator and throwing away the button. Iris takes it and runs up to her room where she tapes it by her closet’s door and pushes it. It dings. She goes into another world and then another. Iris decides it would be more fun to share the adventures with her little brother.
Comments: I love that the end pages have the beginning and end of the story on them instead of being the usual white.
The story is mainly told with detailed graphic illustrations.
This is the second picture book of the duo.
Drawn Together is their first, published in 2018.
