Hasel and Rose


hasel and rose

MAGERL, Caroline Hasel and Rose Viking, 2014 unpaged $24.99 ISBN 9780670077342 SCIS 1672811

Achingly beautiful illustrations tell of the loneliness of Rose in her new home.  At the same time from across the oceans and mountains of the world comes a displaced creature looking for acceptance.  Travel through time, suspension of belief to embrace the inexplicable and the magic of belonging and friendship are woven powerfully into a moving affirmation of the power of love.  The language of the text is exquisite, the visual story commanding.  Highly recommended.
