A nearly wordless story following a little girl in search of someone who understands...

"Kim has created sumptuous images. DiCamillo’s text leaves room for children to fill in the silences with their own boundless imaginations" New York Times

“La la la...”
A little girl stands alone and sings, but hears no response. Gathering her courage and her curiosity, she skips further out into the world, singing away to the trees and the pond and the reeds – but no song comes back to her. Day passes into night, and the girl dares to venture into the darkness towards the light of the moon, climbing as high as she can... Now, will she be heard?
