really liked it

‘Rose was a new face in a new street. And there was a new town right outside her window. When the unpacking was done and everything in its place, Mama told stories with her hands and feet.’

This hardback picture book is a story of resilience, hope, and wishes. We follow Rose’s journey who feels isolated in her new surroundings, and wishes for strength to find her. Luckily, strength or Hasel is on the way. The author has tried to approach the serious subject of displacement with personal warmth by creating an uplifting tale, perfectly complemented by an enchanting visual narrative. Caroline is a gifted illustrator, and her use of imagery in this book is full of movement and feeling. I found this to be an imaginative read accompanied by lovely artistic stroke styled illustrations, that any newcomer could easily relate to and find comforting.
