An album of treasured memories recounted in verse with strikingly drawn colour illustrations.
There’s Alberta, visiting the ducks and desperately hoping that yesterday’s nine new-born ducklings will still be there – or Hans, choosing knitting wool so as to make a huge scarf to keep him - and his Lara – wrapped snugly inside it. Eric, who is looking forward to his picnic - boiled eggs mostly, it seems. While Martha, growing plants in her garden ‘gives them love, warmth, water – each might be her son or daughter.’
A wonderfully expressive picture book of desires and dreams and domestic incident.
