This charming book will delight and touch all readers.

It’s heartbreaking story is told on pages of vibrant colors and uneven widths, pages with cut-outs and strip-ins, pages with peepholes, pages of all shapes and colorful varieties. This story is a universal one. Centered around a little girl. Whose 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 often does things that aren't very nice, and people aren't very nice to her. In fact, they want to send her away. Until, one day...

Part story, part visual play, Love will surprise and enchant all who turn its pages. Illustrated throughout.
