Love by Lowell A. Siff


Love by Lowell A. Siff

This charming little book will delight - and touch - all readers. A sweet, heartbreaking story is played out on shaped pages of vibrant colours, with cut-outs, strip-ins and peep holes. A little girl's parents went away when she was nine. And as she has no relatives to care for her she is taken in by an orphanage. Lonely and a bit unusual she stares at people with her big eyes. She can do things that aren't very nice - and, often, people aren't very nice to her. But all the little girl wants is someone to love...


This little book is as touching, as subtle and as manipulative as a kid who wants something. And just as you can't say no to the child, you can't resist it * * The Times * * A fascinating construction...strikingly executed...Spread a little love around * * The Herald * *
