Stephen Michael King knows people, he really knows them.
What’s even more important is that he really knows how to tell their stories.
Patricia is a little girl with a huge imagination, her mind is so full of thoughts that she is bursting to have someone to share them with.
The problem is that no one seems to know how to listen to her properly, everyone seems to be too busy, or has trouble understanding or simply can’t hear her.
And what’s more… Grandpa is asleep and he’s the only one who seems to understand her.
Stephen Michael King’s hypnotic and familiar illustrations allow the reader to go deeper into the story, reading this alongside a child will be a reel gift, an experience that will help both remember that they need to find time to really listen and talk with one another.
