When his beloved sister dies and his parents are too grief-stricken to attend to him, a little boy must figure out on his own how to process what has happened. When he visits his local library and a kind librarian hands him a “magic ticket,” he finds an unexpected sanctuary in the world of books. Could reading be the gateway to understanding, and coping with, such a devastating loss?
David Hicks (author) and Kateri Kramer (illustrator) have created a tender and moving tale of loss, grief, and the healing power of storytelling, “a love letter to story, to books, and to libraries as a space to nourish both mind and heart” (Maria Mayo, Anythink Libraries).
Recommended for ages six and seven, and for grown-ups everywhere whose childhoods, like that of the author, were forever changed by the death of a loved one.
