Appréciation du livre

The illustrations in this book are absolutely beautiful. The story offers an opportunity for discussion with the children about loneliness – what does it mean, how does it feel and what can we do to help others whom we feel may be suffering from it.

Réaction des enfants

Children love the gorgeous illustrations which are so detailed that you can spend a long time discussing each page and what the children observe on it.
