Everybody has a job to do, and so does the letter Z. But when the workday's done, Z goes home. On the way Z must pass an Alien, a Bridge, a Cake, and 22 other 'characters,' each of them suggesting a familiar shape in Jon Agee's delightful illustrations. After running into a Viper by a Woodpile, some Xeroxes, and a Yoga master, Z does arrive home, finally. Home sweet home, where Z fits right in. JON AGEE is the author/illustrator of The Incredible Painting of Felix Clousseau (an ALA Notable), The Return of Freddy Legrand (an SLJ Best Book), and Dmitri the Astronaut, each chosen by The New York Times as one of the ten best picture books of the year. He has also created six popular books of wordplay, among them Go Hang a Salami! I'm a Lasagna Hog! He lives in San Francisco.
