In-Between Things

By Priscilla Tey
Illustrated by Priscilla Tey

Dive in between the covers of a whimsical, wonderful debut and discover that everything in the world is relative — including you.

Dive in between the covers of a whimsical, wonderful debut and discover that everything in the world is relative — including you. Look over there — the cat is between a table and a chair with a tear. But now look again: the cat is on top of the dog, who’s between the floor and the cat (and not too happy about that!). As you wander through the delightfully detailed illustrations, the more you look, the more you’ll see — including colors made from a mix of two others, hybrid implements such as a spork, warm nooks that are neither too cold nor too hot, even a cross of a zebra and cow that makes a . . . zebrow? In an engaging and utterly stylish debut, rising star Priscilla Tey leads readers on an addictive exploration of the in-between, a surprisingly far-reaching and everywhere concept.

  • An engaging, stylish, endlessly fun addition to English language units about prepositions or Math units about sequencing, sizes, and even Venn diagrams! The ways educators can use this book are numerous!
  • Exciting new author-illustrator's debut picture book. A very bright future is a certainty for Priscilla Tey. She is an engaging and imaginative artist, comfortable speaking about her work, her process, and her ideas, of which she has many! She is represented by Steven Malk at Writer's House.
  • Similar in spirit, tone, and idea to A Hole Is to Dig and Double Take! A New Look at Opposites.

About the author
