Lift Author Minh Le Illustrated by Dan Santat 2020 Age range 4-8
What kid (or a kid at heart) does not want to get into the elevator first to push an elevator button? In Lift Iris is one of those kids-in charge of the elevator - until her younger brother takes her place. In retaliation Iris pushes all the buttons leaving the elevator broken. While the lift is being fixed, she notices that the call button has been thrown away, she takes it back to her apartment and gives it a place of honor on her wall. The button as Iris will discover is magic and new worlds await Iris and her brother.
