A Line Can Be . . .

By Laura Ljungkvist

Children ages 2 to 5 have been swept away by Laura Ljungkvist’s quest to “follow the line,”  and now Laura is back to share the innumerable things A Line Can Be . . . Not only does A Line Can Be . . . feature nuanced art, Scandinavian style design, and a playful premise, it has children and adults guessing from the first page how a line can weave itself into different shapes and sizes. This book is sure to intrigue the adventurer in all of us!

Beginning on the front cover, and winding its way across each page to the end, one line forms different forms that demonstrate opposites – “hard” or “soft” – in Ljungkvist's signature modern style. Parents and children alike will love the touching ending, sure to bring them together for repeated readings.

Laura Ljungkvist has worked for The Museum of Modern Art, Bergdorf Goodman, The New Yorker, and Wallpaper. Her first children's book was published in 2001, and many more have followed. Laura's vibrant, modern style has earned her many awards and international acclaim. Laura lives with her husband, young daughter, and a pitbull named Lola in Brooklyn, NY. Visit her at
