I found this book so incredibly sad. Beautifully sad. I read it as a metaphor for life and how we spend our time as well as who we spend our time with that really matters. Sometimes we think we need to do impressive things to please those we care about when really if they truly care about us, all they want is our time because it is the most precious thing we have to give them. Life is short so spend it together.

Sweet melancholy. A young woman reflects on her relationship with her Grandfather after the passing of her Grandmother. "It's so easy not to notice a man of few words." The text and illustration are almost quiet, like the Grandfather himself. This perfect duo invites you to be a part of a very intimate relationship.

Striking, somber, simple, and spellbinding. A grey meditation on love and grief with concise, lyrical text and muted illustrations. Somewhat obtuse and fanciful, yet entirely emotive and evocative. As for format, this is to picture books what graphic novels are to comic book issues. It's hard to think who to recommend it to yet it's hard to imagine anyone not finding a poignant beauty in it. It's hard to know what else to say.
