Product Description

Product Description

What happens if the world unexpectedly stands still for a moment? If, just like that, you are given a bit of time by sheer luck? This is exactly what happens in one of the biggest and busiest cities of the world, as a small snail crosses the street and makes traffic stop for half a day. A book about things that you always wanted to do but never had the time for.


Reviews


"charming"—Kirkus Reviews

"A proposal to improve the world"—Westfälische Nachrichten

"humorous"—ehrensenf.de

"interesting not just in its story or its message, but also in how it delivers that message. The colors and backgrounds have a rich sense of texture, unlike the majority of children’s books."—ForeWord Clarion Reviews

"fabulous"—spiegel.de

"A creative bedtime story, which is also suitable for stressed adults. [...] In the bustle of the city, the animals seize the moment and become aware of how beautiful life can be without stress and hustle."—Designers in Action

"sets out to demonstrate what can happen when we're true to ourselves, when we seize our day, when we live in the present, when we actually feel and enjoy the weather, when we are spontaneous, when we break from routine, when we defy expectation, and how these rather small acts of joy can inspire others"—Amazon.com Customer Review

"beautiful"—geizkragen.de

"The story of a little snail who triggers big changes."—Münstersche Zeitung

HASH(0xb1dfa7e0) out of 5 stars Defy Gravity Sept. 6 2014
By Sean Pilgrim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Be you. Embrace what you love to do. "Fifteen Feet of Time" sets out to demonstrate what can happen when we're true to ourselves, when we seize our day, when we live in the present, when we actually feel and enjoy the weather, when we are spontaneous, when we break from routine, when we defy expectation, and how these rather small acts of joy can inspire others. "Fifteen Feet of Time" was a rather charming tale that thoroughly surprised me. I enjoyed reading this just as much as any child would enjoy looking at the pictures and listening along. And the mixed-medium illustrations were such a real treat. The illustrations were delightful, quirky, and downright adorable.
