Patricia bases her stories on real life, real people and real neighbourhoods. It makes her stories feel personal and well, 'real'!

This story includes so many themes for children to talk about you could bring it out every other week. Loss. Loneliness. Community. Family. Love. Hardship. Friendship. Slavery.

How much more can one writer pack into a picture book?! But it doesn't feel didactic or over crowded with ideas. I loved it - can't wait to read it with my kids.
