Is there anything Dave Eggers can’t do? The multi-talented juggernaut’s latest project—a collaboration with artist Shawn Harris—is an illustrated novel for all ages. The Eyes and the Impossible is an animal fable about Johannes, a dog who serves as “the Eyes” of an urban park, alerting its animal inhabitants to any unusual activity, especially to the arrival of “Trouble Travelers” and other humans. Harris’s richly-hued full-color paintings accompany Eggers’s wildly imaginative, emotionally resonant story that offers both gentle humor and profound musings about freedom, mortality, and the responsibilities of a community toward one another. You’ll want to make it your next readaloud—no matter your age. All ages.
