Rated E for Everyone

When Iris’s elevator button-pushing is disrupted by a new member of the family, she’s pretty left 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 it becomes a question between going it alone or letting someone else tag along, Iris finds that sharing a discovery with the people you love can be the most wonderful experience of all.


It doesn’t matter how old you are, this book will bring out the button pushing kid in you.


It’s an undeniable fact that kids love pushing buttons. This story and this Baby Blues comic proves it.

If you love imagination adventure stories, this is the book for you. If this had been around when I was a kid, it would have been my favorite book. I love any book the depicts an imagination adventure.


With a graphic novel format and very few words, this story is told mostly through the incredible and detailed illustrations.


I’m hoping for a sequel. I want to see where the elevator will take them next. I could easily see this story concept being made into a cartoon TV series. I’d watch it.

    This sounds like a cool concept of an elevator taking you different places to explore.
