Description

 

Sometimes you find friendship where you least expect it!

Ernest is flying his kite when it gets stuck in a tree. At the same moment, there's a flash in the sky, followed by a loud crash! He sets out on a difficult journey up a mountain to find out what happened.

When he discovers a strange being has landed at the top, Ernest hides in fear. But he soon realizes that this creature needs his help.

As they find ways to understand each other, it becomes clear that solving their problems together means they are no longer strangers – they are friends!

Told in spare text and perfectly paced art in panels and full pages, this visually rich story brings through themes that are both timely and timeless — to challenge first impressions, to find strength in differences, and to understand important needs we all share.

Praise for Wallace Edwards:

• Winner, Governor General's Literary Award for Children's Book Illustration (Alphabeasts)

* “Edwards . . .lets his beautiful, mysterious pictures operate on the imagination as they will.” (Alphabeasts) —Quill & Quire, starred review

* “Many young readers are (rightly) allergic to anything that can be described as ‘exquisite,' but there is no better word for The Cat's Pajamas.” (The Cat's Pajamas) —Quill & Quire, starred review

“In a finished, painterly style, Edwards places his often hilariously imagined subjects in elaborate settings.” (Mixed Beasts)—Kirkus Reviews
