A Quiet Place

By Douglas Wood; Dan Andreasen (Illustrator)

Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, Paperback, 9780689876097, 32pp.

Publication Date: May 1, 2005

"Sometimes a person needs a quiet place."
A place that's far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life --
a place that isn't ringing or talking or roaring or playing.
But sometimes that place isn't easy to find.
Explore what it's like to find a special someplace where we
all can think our own thoughts and feel our own feelings.

Praise For A Quiet Place

"The pretty, framed, full-page pictures have an old-fashioned Saturday Evening Post feel to them."


"In his latest effort, Wood hearkens back to a simpler time to suggest an alternative to the modern child....Solid soul guidance for a media-saturated society."

--Kirkus Reviews
