Mister Horizontal and Miss Vertical couldn't be more different.

Can you guess who likes gliding, boating and "walking in the desert, with sand as far as the eye can see?" And who likes bungee jumping, rockets, and "New York, the city of sky scrapers?"

More than just a concept book about horizontal and vertical, this is a book about opposites, and a fabulous mentor text for writers of all age and experience who need to practice describing their characters in a variety of ways.


  1. I enjoyed this short piece. It's positive and peeked my interest to take a look at the book myself. Horizontal and vertical are everywhere - it's a bit like left and right.

  2. Looks like another wonderful book from Enchanted Lion!
