La La La: A Story of Hope

by Kate DiCamillo, illustrated by Jaime Kim - £7.99  Walker Books Ltd (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781406379884 | ISBN 10: 1406379883

Conceived by Kate DiCamillo and featuring an enchanting illustrator, this nearly wordless graphic story follows a little girl in search of someone who understands.
 
In this nearly wordless story, Flora and Ulysses' Kate DiCamillo and illustrator Jaime Kim convey a lonely child’s longing for a friend.
 
“La la la...”
 
A little girl stands alone and sings, but hears no response. Gathering her courage and her curiosity, she skips further out into the world, singing away to the trees and the pond and the reeds – but no song comes back to her. Day passes into night, and the girl dares to venture into the darkness toward the light of the moon, climbing as high as she can... Now, will she be heard?
 
With a subtle palette and captivating expressiveness, Jaime Kim brings to life an endearing character and a transcendent landscape that invite readers along on an emotionally satisfying journey.
 
Recommended for readers aged: 4+
