Surely her father is writing coded letters and if Rosalie could read them herself, she could decode them and carry on with her next secret mission. She carries on and makes great advances. But as she begins to peace together the secret signs and symbols; the words in her fathers' letters; she learns of the harsh reality of war and how her world has changed forever.
It invites us into a tale about hope, longing, grief and peace that is powerful, yet quiet and thoughtful. The flowing, minimal language navigates through Rosalies' vision of the world around, revealing the innocence, inquisitiveness and sense of adventure at the heart of the child. Arsenaults' illustrations are emotive and set the mood perfectly with their fresh drawing technique, ingenious detail and limited colour palette. The red hues used for Rosalie herself help her character shine forth and sing, bringing beauty, attention and a hint of drama unfolding elsewhere, and that which is about to unfold in her life.
As we remember the centenary of the end of the First World War, many exceptional childrens' books have appeared with this dreadful moment in time at their core. This little book stands head and shoulders above them all. Exquisite, heart-wrenching, and unforgettable It seeks to help his child remember the wonderful times they had together and to remind his child of the deep bond; the love they shared.
And it does exactly that so beautifully. Sadly, there are so many children who lose their parents while they are only young. Preparing them for the moment that Mum or Dad are no longer there is one of the most difficult conversations a parent could ever have. These are things we don't want to talk about This book serves as a reminder, but also to show the child there are so many other people surrounding them that will help them, nurture them and be there for them.
But it will be okay.

We mainly sell remaindered books. Often when a new title is going to be released, the publishers can only guess at how many of that title they are going to sell. A lot of the time their guess is wrong and print too many. They send the books out to regular bookstores and department stores and they sit on the shelf waiting to be purchased. Eventually the popularity of that title will wane and those books will just be taking up valuable room. The retailer would obviously prefers to fill the shelf space with newer titles that they hope will sell better.
After a certain amount of time the bookseller is able to pack up the remaining copies and send them back to the publishers for a refund. The publishers suddenly find themselves with a lot of books that the regular booksellers no longer want to stock, and they are left with two options - either destroy the books or resell them at a discounted price. In most cases the publishers would rather resell them to bookstores like us!
Remaindered books are usually marked with a black pen along the base of the book to indicate their current status. They also exhibit a certain level of wear and tear caused by the extra travel and handling but are essentially brand new.
