Twice Just to be Sure

A musicky tale for imaginative people

Authored by Uncle Pea, Joel Pomerantz
Designed by Amy Conger
Illustrated by Lance Jackson

Few books for children and parents are as layered as this little storybook. For example, the metaphorical story takes place in a time before written language was fully functional, but the lyrical phrasings stretch the bounds of normal language. The intriguing complexities make the book unusual in that it doesn't talk down to kids, as most illustrated children's books do. Twice, Just to be Sure is the word-playful tale of an optimistic child's reasoning in an unreasonably tumbley world. This story celebrates music, human communication and garden veggies through the eyes of idgie, a child with a knack for contemplation. The book has beautifully artsy art, musicky music, and even a special typeface crafted around the story of name-challenged idgie, who discovers a solution to the "conundrums" of the world.
