The Heart and the Bottle

Once there was a girl whose life was filled with wonder at the world around her… Then one day something happened which made her take her heart and put it in a safe place. But after that, it seemed that the world was emptier than before. Would the girl know how to get her heart back? A moving tale exploring themes of love and loss, this book lightly indicates how the actions we take to protect ourselves may simultaneously hold us back from living our lives. Ultimately uplifting and life affirming, we are reminded that there is always hope. Oliver Jeffers, an award winning artist, beautifully captures in his illustrations the special relationships that can exist between people and the worlds in which we live.
