The Liszts by Kyo Maclear is a quirky picture book that promotes relationship skills, thinkers, and open-mindedness.
“The Liszts made lists Scritch, scratch. They made most usual. And lists more usual.” The Liszts are a family obsessed with making lists, from the ordinary to the unusual, except on Sundays which are listless. “Mama made lists of ghastly illnesses and the grates soccer player of all time. Papa made lists of dreaded chores and small winged insects.”
When an unannounced visitor arrives, the family continue writing their lists. He continues to knock on the door they ignore him. Except for the youngest who takes a risk and embraces the unexpected.
