Blackout BSW473


One hot summer night in the city, all the power goes out. The TV shuts off and a boy wails, "Mommm!" His sister can no longer use the phone, Mom can't work on her computer, and Dad can't finish cooking dinner. What's a family to do? When they go up to the roof to escape the heat, they find the lights--in stars that can be seen for a change--and so many neighbors it's like a block party in the sky! On the street below, people are having just as much fun--talking, rollerblading, and eating ice cream before it melts. The boy and his family enjoy being not so busy for once. They even have time to play a board game together. When the electricity is restored, everything can go back to normal . . . but not everyone likes normal. The boy switches off the lights, and out comes the board game again.Using a combination of panels and full bleed illustrations that move from color to black-and-white and back to color, John Rocco shows that if we are willing to put our cares aside for a while, there is party potential in a summer blackout.

一個普通的夏日夜晚,城市裡到處都悶熱、吵雜、忙碌。這時候……停電了,每件事都不一樣了。但是,這不見得是一件壞事!因為不是每個人都喜歡正常。本書榮獲2012年凱迪克銀牌獎。作者約翰.洛可曾榮獲美國博多書店原聲獎最佳圖畫書獎。後來為雷克.萊爾頓Rick Riordan的暢銷作品──【波西傑克森】系列、【埃及守護神】系列,以及【混血營英雄】系列T繪製封面。
