A playful ode to things that come and go in life—and the one special bond that never fades
There are many things that go away: leaves fall, tears dry, music lasts only for a few moments, and bubbles pop, vanishing without a trace. Everything in life passes, moves on, or transforms—except one thing that never fades. With her signature warmth, playfulness, and beautiful illustrations, Beatrice Alemagna reminds us that in a changing world, the love between parent and child remains constant.
<p>Beatrice Alemagna was born in Bologna, Italy, in 1973. At eight years old she knew she would become a painter and a writer. Since then she has published more than thirty books all over the world–from France and Italy to Japan and the United States. Some of her books available in the United States include <em>A Lion in Paris</em>, which <em>Kirkus Reviews</em> called an “artful, whimsical delight,” and <em>The Wonderful Fluffy Little Squishy</em>, which won the 2016 Mildred L. Batchelder Award. Beatrice makes her home in Paris, where she lives with her husband and two daughters. </p><p>Visit her at www.beatricealemagna.com.</p>
