"It took me by surprise this book - brought to…"
It took me by surprise this book - brought to me in the library by my three year old daughter. Beautifully illustrated..but with a grim start...A little girl, Genevieve, who hates the sea - despite living in a harbourside house by the beach. On page two, we find out why - her daddy went away in a fishing boat one day and never came back. Wracked with grief, her mother, baby brother and herself cried alot. And then came Cedric - a giant of a man - and we see him change - in Genevieve's eyes - from an intrusive ogre - to a big playful bear - who helps the family move out of sadness and towards happiness once more. Princesses, castles, grief and recovery are intertwined as this little girl works through her loss and sadness towards a more hopeful and fun-filled future.Read moreLess
