I think that it would be hard NOT to fall in love with Soomi. The illustrator of this story makes her so sweet and appealing. The story itself is simple but has some themes that are important; these include wanting things maybe at the wrong time, the importance of the intended helpfulness of friends even when this does not quite hit the mark, feeling one’s emotions, being able to tell a parent something hard and the ability to fix things and make them better. All of this told through the story of a sweater. Highly recommended.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
