One of our favourite visiting authors this year, Kate diCamillo, is publishing her first picture book in ten years! It’s an inspiring nearly wordless collaboration with illustrator Jaime Kim who works in gouache and acrylics to create poignant images.
The book called ‘La La La: A Story of Hope‘ is a tale about a young girl searching for friendship. She sets out with courage and curiosity, singing her song, reaching out to the trees and the pond, venturing further and further, until she sings to the moon. Her journey is inspiring and emotionally satisfying crossing transcendent landscapes.
