Marcia Ciro: “Using the metaphor of breathing, this book explores the relationship between feeling safe and feeling in danger. Images of sharp, piercing objects on the outside contrast with the glittering fresh air of the seashore on the inside. The flaps on the outside reveal devices to help you breathe when you’re in trouble; on the inside, a heart and lungs work together in harmony. The action of holding the book mimics breathing.”
