"As Jo?ao tucks under a lovingly woven quilt, he asks himself: So it's just me now? He curls up, getting cozy in bed, and soon the world of his dreams unspools on the page. The blanket in his bed unravels into deep rivers, lakes, valleys, reservoirs, mountain ranges, fishing nets full of tadpoles and gaping holes, until what's left is just one long thread. When he feels alone and scared in the dark, Jo?ao "sews words like patchwork" into a new blanket to cover himself up. He weaves the threads of his quilt until they form one long sentence, and soon, the nighttime is peppered with his own silvery, slippery words. Roger Mello draws like a shapeshifter - to look at his illustrations is always to see something you missed before (a stingray, a crescent moon nestled into the palm of Jo?ao's hand). His breathtaking line drawings, beaming in white thread against deep red, combined with poetic and bewildered language, make Jo?ao by a Thread a book to take into bed at the edge of sleep, just before you start to dream."--
