I just finished reading this book to my daughter. We LOVE Kevin Henkes children's books: Lily's Purple Plastic Purse, Owen, Chrysanthemum, etc.

And his novels are just as sweet natured. There's a quiet loveliness to his stories of parenting and childhood, honoring both the difficulty if the former and the autonomy of the latter. And let's not forget the characteristic Henkes cadence in his prose. You'll know what I mean when you read it.

Protecting Marie was beautiful.
