Amazon Description

A beautiful wordless picture book about the effects of a flood on a family and their home.

One Potato Review

Simple as its title. No words here – no need. Villa trains his voluptuous brush strokes on both the fleeting (a father offering one last glance inside his windows before driving away) and the panoramic (floodwaters overwhelming a puny wall of stones). In between there’s a motel, hysterical newscasters, the usual, but this story wrings a surprising dose of understated optimism from familiar recent events. Doomsday preppers: you can go home again.
