…the story will set children thinking about life and love.
Recommended for anyone who can identify with a protagonist utterly unravelling and wants to ponder on big questions.
Though simple on the surface, this story may spark questions and conversation about identity, second chances, and sense of purpose
It’s a beautiful mix of words and pictures to create a tender and thoughtful tale which showcases Lucas’s trademark blend of philosophy, myth and fairytale.
