Draw the Line is a powerful and poignant picture book about forgiveness from Kathryn Otoshi, author of the bestselling book One.

When two boys draw their own lines and realize they can connect them together-magic happens!

But a misstep causes their lines to get crossed.

Push! Pull! Tug! Yank!
Soon their line unravels into an angry tug-of-war.

With a growing rift between them, will the boys ever find a way to come together again?

Acclaimed author/illustrator Kathryn Otoshi uses black and white illustrations with thoughtful splashes of color to create a powerful, multi-layered statement about friendship, boundaries, and healing after conflict.

Industry Reviews

"Otoshi's fluid watercolors are sheer loveliness, surpassed only by her ability to communicate big concepts with no words. A simple, beautiful concept whose reach grows with each rereading." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Otoshi's fluid watercolors are sheer loveliness, surpassed only by her ability to communicate big concepts with no words. A simple, beautiful concept whose reach grows with each rereading." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"This wordless book uses symbolism to beautifully illustrate the damage that conflict can cause. The growing chasm, along with the mixed colors that clearly capture the boys' feelings (yellow for happy, purple for unhappy) as they fluctuate, is striking. This beautiful analogy of conflict resolution is a must-have for all libraries." --School Library Journal, starred review

"Reminiscent of Chris Raschka's 1994 Caldecott Honor Yo! Yes?. Otoshi's watercolor illustrations are arresting and her characters so expressive, the youngest of readers may easily fill in the textless story for themselves . . . [A] striking wordless book." --Shelf Awareness, starred review

"Powerful." --Booklist

"Otoshi suggests that if those in conflict stay open to the possibilities, resolution can be found in unexpected places." --Publishers Weekly
