Once upon a time, there was a girl named Jane. She had lots of little brothers and sisters...
It begins a sweet and unusual tale.
Two pages in I'm a blubbering mess, shuffling around on my desk for a tissue. A box of them.
I wish I'd been prepared for the emotional impact waiting me between the covers of The Balloon Lady, a new book by author Kierstyn King. But who knew that something intended for the 6-to-10-year-olds in this world would affect me this way?
|Charming illustrations by Kierstyn King.|
So unfolds a simple, tender story of love.
And you will cry.
