So many books. So little time.
When Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld collaborate magic happens. The good kind of magic, that carries you away into a happy place.
Writing as a litany of wishes:
More give than take.
More will than hill
More can than knot….. and more, and many more.
There is wordplay at work here: a Rosenthal trademark.
Illustrations, colorful, sparse, yet drawing out meaning. Look at the illustration for “I wish you more pause than fast-forward.” Perfection.
The book is a benediction, and more. It is a poem of gratitude: “I wish all this for you, because you are everything I could wish for….and more.”
Perfection. As a reader one could not ask for more.
