A very "exquisite" book! I love how they describe all the things, and how they illustrate the book. Let's see...the only two words to describe it would be "delightful" and "exquisite". Such a simple yet wonderful story! :)

Neat little book, but not sure who is the intended audience?

Will a young child understand the lost love? or is it a short story for someone older?

Beautifully illustrated.
