Well, if any of us needed to find a reason to fear wallpaper…you’ve got one now!
I’m kind of kidding. I helped a friend peel 1970s wallpaper off their kitchen once, and that’s probably quite enough to make me avoid it.
And yet, there is a very delightful picture book out in the world now, which imagines all kinds of lives happening in the layers of wallpaper. There are even MONSTERS! And rainbows! And maybe a new friend or two, too. The adults might keeping doing their “blah, blah” thing, but this girl will be off on an adventure to who-knows-where. Perfect.
