The story and illustrations in this beautiful, timeless narrative are a tribute to the small things we hold dear to us. Author Jane Godwin writes sensitively about an old house, a young girl and how things always stay with us even after they leave. Anna Walker’s stunning art evokes the moods of Tilly’s journey. Wistful images from spread to spread captivate the essence of family life. Young readers will connect on one or more levels, but this girl is bound to capture the hearts of us all. A true keeper.
