There’s a wall in the middle of this book—and that’s a good thing. What else will keep one side safe from the other?
There’s a wall in the middle of this book—and that’s a good thing. The wall keeps the friendly knight safe from the other side. Most importantly, it protects the knight from the ogre. If the ogre ever caught the knight, the ogre would eat him up. But the ogre is over there, on the other side, so the knight is perfectly safe. Nothing can harm the knight if he stays where he is.
Until something happens—something that’s, well, not supposed to happen. There’s a danger on the knight’s side of the wall. What can he do? Is the knight doomed? Or will he learn a valuable lesson about stepping over the walls we’ve built between us?
The Wall in the Middle of the Book is a beautiful metaphor. It shows readers that walls don’t just keep out danger, they can also keep us in. The story also demonstrates how assumptions can sometimes keep us from discovering exciting new things. Written and illustrated by Jon Agee. Published by Penguin.
