The sky’s no limit in a witty picture book about a child on a swing and the wonders of the imagination.

One child. One swing. An obliging dad. The inevitable plea to go "Higher! Higher!" Add Leslie Patricelli’s wildly expressive illustrations, and an everyday pastime reaches new heights of humor and whimsy. How high can it go? Higher than a giraffe? Taller than a mountain? Is Earth the final frontier? The creator of a popular series of board books rises to the occasion with an ingenious picture book of very few words that expresses the giddy glee of being pushed in a swing.

Praise For…

Hand-lettering and cheerful cartoon-like acrylics reinforce the childlike feel of the book, while the sensibilities are preschooler-perfect, from the mix of security and adventure to that ubiquitous high five.
—The Horn Book (starred review)

The repetitive text is ideal for new readers, and the cartoon paintings, though spare, provide plenty of room for imagination. An excellent choice to share at storytime.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Patricelli once again proves she is a master of demonstrating for very young children the wonders of a good imagination.
