An imaginative and creative picture book about a blossoming friendship formed by two children passing drawings across the clothesline between their apartment windows.

Perfect for fans of classics like The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds, Swatch by Julia Denos, and Beautiful Oops by Barney Saltzberg.  

Between two windows, a clothesline creaks and squeaks.

Kayla and Mateo pass drawings of dinosaurs back and forth,

  back and forth,

       back and forth...

until a story comes to life.

And along this clothesline, the worlds of two friends come together.

But when the clothesline is taken down, will they find a new way to keep their story going?

Find out in this picture book about creativity, the power of art, adventure, innovation, and friendship.
