Overview

A hopeful journey into the heart of a child as she heals her father’s sadness at the loss of her mother

One Saturday morning, Daddy won’t get out of bed. He misses Paula’s mom. Paula misses her too, but she realizes that Mommy wouldn’t want them to be sad forever. Paula knows just what to do. Taking out paper and paints, Paula creates a world of rolling seas, blue skies, and—best of all—a boat that she and Dad can sail together. And when the wind blows up a storm, Paula knows just what she and Daddy can do about that too.

In this sweet and poignant story about memory and overcoming grief, Sanne Dufft, the author/illustrator of The Night Lion, shows how a child’s imagination can find a moment of joy and a safe place to land after a loved one is gone.

There's something wrong today. Paula's daddy just stays in bed. No sound of bare feet on the wooden floor. No smell of coffee or hot chocolate.

Paula waits until she can't wait any longer.
