How many ways are there to define forever? With machines that power the sun and moon, ballet dancers, desert islands, abandoned bird cages, firefighters, physics, Shakespeare, and more, Argentinian author-illustrator Pablo Bernasconi, finalist for the 2018 Hans Christian Andersen Award, creates a universe where the possibilities are endless.
Pairing stunning imagery with poetic meditations, Bernasconi invites kids and adults to use their imaginations to consider the concept of infinity. Is it an idea that refuses to be caged in a word? Maybe! Is it a jar full of stories and white ink spilled on the snow? Could be! Winner of the Grand Prize from the Asociación de Literatura Infantil y Juvenil de la Argentina (ALIJA) in 2018, Infinity works equally well as a bedtime story, a teaching prompt, or a graduation gift.
"This tantalizing amalgam of the philosophical, artistic, and mathematical offers multiple entrees to an irresistible concept. (Picture book. 9-adult)" —Kirkus Reviews
★ "Rendered alongside unexplained equations and symbols (“some are personal, others mystical or mythical” reads a note), each spread lands with a conceptual splash before moving briskly on to the next; together, they comprise a remarkable thought experiment for readers of all ages." —Publishers Weekly, starred review
