Comet Sense is an illustrated picture book about ‘the people who always look down & the people who always look up’. Because of this the two groups never seem to see what the other sees which causes fear & hatred to grow... that is, until an event causes them to see from the other’s perspective.
In this time of opposite perspectives that have been ignited by the powers that be, it is incumbent on each of us to try to look past the organized polarization and try to find common ground, common sense, or in this case “Comet Sense”.
Comet Sense is full of layers and complex ideas interwoven with pop culture, American icons & mythologies that make it a fun and challenging experience to read and savor.
