Publisher's Description

Friendship, fear, loneliness — these are things that are universally experienced but difficult to describe. In this arresting poetry collection, Synne Lea explores these concepts and more through the thoughts and experiences of a family. As the family members examine their connections with each other and the world around them, they gain a deeper appreciation of love and friendship and learn how to reach beyond the confines of their own isolation.

Accompanied by breathtaking artwork, these enchanting poems will stay with readers long after they have turned the final page.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"It's rare to see children's poetry in translation in the U.S., making this volume a welcome addition to the category, from creators who are widely lauded in Europe. . . . Hole's photorealistic collage paintings, with elements of magical realism, form a strong partnership with [Lea's] spare, sophisticated text, which weaves elements of magic and delight in the natural world into the way children experience emotions."
