Heart and the Bottle: A Storybook about Loss


Product Description

Published UK, 2012
In this storybook, the remarkable Oliver Jeffers deals with the weighty themes of love and loss. With his extraordinary lightness of touch, he shows us, ultimately, that there is always hope. The story deals with a girl whose life was filled with wonder at the world around her until, one day, something happened that made the girl put her heart in a safe place - a bottle. However, after that it seemed that the world was emptier than before: she forgot about the stars and stopped taking notice of the sea. Not knowing how to get her heart back, it occurred to someone smaller and still curious about the world that she might know a way. And so it happened that the heart was put back where it came from. A beautiful story.

Oliver Jeffers lives in New York. This is his sixth picture book.
