To me, this is an adult’s story masquerading as a child’s tale although both generations may well enjoy it. I loved the nostalgic feel of this story of the umbrella. In some ways it brought to mind, The Velveteen Rabbit, in terms of how important objects from our pasts can be forgotten or discarded but still can have deep meaning.
The illustrations in this title are beautiful; they have an old fashioned appeal that I very much liked. I will go back to enjoy them again, I am sure.
The story is about a special umbrella and what it means to two children and their childhoods. Who are they to one another? How does this special umbrella hold up? Read this very sweet book to find out.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
