"Beautifully produced and profoundly moving... It made me cry, and I,m pretty sure I won,t be the only one." The Irish Times "Jeffers anatomises loss and the processes of grief with an honesty and ingenuity that will move adults and children of any age." Telegraph "The illustrations are so perfect that they made me want to cry even before the grandpa dies." Sunday Telegraph feature covering 'The best books for all ages,. "Oliver Jeffers is one of the most important picture book artists this country has produced. With almost a million books sold in 19 languages, and countless awards already under his belt, this new title sees him in top form. "From the blue pencil sketches on the end papers, to the clever double-jacket cover, every aspect of this book is beautifully designed, making it a pleasure to hold and read. The illustrations are fantastic, spare, yet full of the emotion, energy, colour and quirky details we've come to expect from Jeffers. When a little girl's father - a man who understands wonder and delights in sharing it with his daughter - dies, she is so perplexed by grief she takes out her heart and puts it in a bottle. She wears it around her neck to keep it safe, and there it stays until she grows up and meets someone who knows how to take it back out again. A simple story, yet one full of wisdom and magic. A story which will equally bewitch adult and child, just like a classic children's book should." Irish Independent


Award-winning picture book star Oliver Jeffers explores themes of love and loss in this life-affirming and uplifting tale.

Once there was a girl whose life was filled with wonder at the world around her…
Then one day something happened that made the girl take her heart and put it in a safe place. However, after that it seemed that the world was emptier than before. But would she know how to get her heart back?

In this deeply moving story, Oliver Jeffers deals with the weighty themes of love and loss with an extraordinary lightness of touch and shows us, ultimately, that there is always hope.
