A touching picture book about a group of children who must say goodbye to a dear friend.
Margot is sad because her beloved pet, Tim, has died.
She and her friends band together to give him a proper sendoff. Melinda brings her French horn. Vincent brings balloons. Otto wears his best hat. When all gather together, they celebrate Tim's beautiful, simple life as they send him on a surprising farewell journey to a special place above the mountains and beyond the clouds.
And Margot has a feeling that Tim is happy once again.
This tender story from Steven Salerno also features his beautiful illustrations, with a simple color palette and classic feel. Tim's Goodbye is sure to strike a chord with readers who have experienced a difficult farewell.
The Fantastic Ferris Wheel: "An absorbing read for young makers and dreamers." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review"The book's strength are the dramatic, mixed-media illustrations, which capture the enormity of Ferris's wheel and its spectacular appearance when lit up at night. . . . Useful for discussing how written texts and illustrations work together." --School Library Journal, starred review"Salerno's precisely drafted illustrations give a solid sense of the era, including intricate renderings of Chicago architecture and the construction of the wheel, while Kraft creates a genuine suspense in the lead-up to its debut." --Publishers Weekly
