by Mac Barnett,


What is love? a young boy asks. I can't answer that, his grandmother says, and so the boy goes out into the world to find out. But while each person he meets--the fisherman, the actor, and others--has an answer to his question, not one seems quite right. Could love really be a fish, or applause, or the night? Or could it actually be something much closer to home? This tender, funny tale is an original take on the I love you story, a picture book treasure for all ages to read and cherish.
