A heart-warming modern fairy tale. Polonsky’s illustrations will capture young readers. Hidden faces combine with bright colours and deep landscapes to provide intrigue to all. Geffen’s words are profound and meaningful. Reading the words brings adults back to a simpler time and makes everyone kinder for at least a moment after reading.
