Editorial Reviews

'What makes this book magical is the delicate, beautiful, emotional illustrations, with elements of the story depicted through pictures of feathers and knitting scattered around the text, as well as page spreads with dramatic colours showing the depths of emotion. ÿIt is a beautiful book in itself - its size and shape attracted me immediately, even before I began to read. A book to treasure.'
