Summary
From the award-winning and bestselling creators of Drawn Together comes the fantastic tale of a magical elevator that will lift your spirits--and press all the right buttons!
Iris loves to push the elevator buttons in her apartment building, but when it's time to share the fun with a new member of the family, she's pretty put out. That is, until the sudden appearance of a mysterious new button opens up entire realms of possibility, places where she can escape and explore on her own. But when she's forced to choose between going at it alone or letting her little brother tag along, Iris finds that sharing a discovery with the people you love can be the most wonderful experience of all.
Using their dynamic comics-inspired storytelling, acclaimed author Minh Lê and Caldecott Medal-winning artist Dan Santat carry readers on a journey of ups, downs, and twists and turns that will send hearts--and imaginations--soaring.

Booklist Review: "Iris cherishes the simple pleasure of pushing the elevator buttons whenever her family comes or goes from their apartment building--that is, until her toddler brother starts pushing them instead. Feeling betrayed, Iris sulks until she finds an elevator button panel, discarded by a repairman, in the trash. After smuggling the treasure into her room, she tapes it to the wall. When she pushes the button for comfort--DING!--a door opens. Each time she steps through, it takes her to another faraway escape. She visits a tiger-inhabited jungle and the International Space Station, and when she's finally moved to share her adventures, she takes her little brother along too. The magical pairing of Lê and Santat (Drawn Together, 2018) returns with another poignant family drama steeped in cinematic imagination, this time focused on the stress of having a younger sibling. The text itself is spare, offering narration from Iris when needed--which is not often, as the story is beautifully told through Santat's expressive characters and dynamic panels of sequential art. Indeed, every visual element is hard at work, leaving a trail of details that prompts attentive readers to question whether they are witnessing wizardry or simple imagination. Either way, it's an entirely immersive experience that children will reach for, again and again, like their own magic button."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Collaborators Lê and Santat (Drawn Together) mix a tale about sibling rivalry with a classic fantasy quest. Spare text by Lê along with Santat's panel artwork tell the story of Iris, whose small, special pleasure is pushing the button in her building's elevator. One awful day, her task is appropriated, without warning, by her baby brother. Her parents and sibling beam with pride; Iris scowls. After an elevator repairman's visit tackles the out-of-service elevator next door, Iris retrieves the discarded button panel. "I wish I could be anywhere but here," she fumes. She tapes it to the wall next to her closet, and presses: "Ding!" Light breaks across her face as the closet door opens; her amazement presages wonders that readers can't yet see. Iris's first foray into a new world ends quickly, but she soon gets another chance, and a dazzling adventure unfolds--until an unexpected but very familiar voice brings her back. Santat's comedic versatility and theatrical use of light give the story cinematic momentum, while Lê's insight into Iris's conflicting emotions adds depth and warmth to the tale. Journeys to other worlds, Iris discovers, mean little without the warmth of her own. Ages 4--8. Author's agent: Stephen Barbara, Inkwell Management. Illustrator's agent: Jodi Reamer, Writers House.
