About the Author
Patricia MacLachlan (1938-2022) was the celebrated author of many timeless books for young readers, including Sarah, Plain and Tall, winner of the Newbery Medal. She was also the author of many beloved picture books, a number of which she cowrote with her daughter, Emily.
"Brief but emotionally intense...MacLachlan demonstrates her mastery of elegantly unfolding a tale and gently plucking at readers' heartstrings without taking a maudlin tone."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"A spare, poetically composed tale written in short chapters perfect for beginning read-it-alone readers, this should resonate with young and old alike--and makes for a great intergenerational story to share."--ALA Booklist
