An artist book meets graphic novel meets children’s book, the publication is dedicated to his grandson and captures an earnest imagination.

The bilingual text parts in the middle, and is printed to flip and read in opposite directions. According to Weiner, “It is about building something. And the forces that be.” English and Spanish text.
