Conceived by Kate DiCamillo and featuring an enchanting illustrator, this nearly wordless graphic story follows a little girl in search of someone who understands.

In this nearly wordless story, Flora and Ulysses' Kate DiCamillo and illustrator Jaime Kim convey a lonely child’s longing for a friend.

“La la la...” A little girl stands alone and sings, but hears no response. Gathering her courage and her curiosity, she skips further out into the world, singing away to the trees and the pond and the reeds – but no song comes back to her.

Day passes into night, and the girl dares to venture into the darkness toward the light of the moon, climbing as high as she can...

Now, will she be heard? With a subtle palette and captivating expressiveness, Jaime Kim brings to life an endearing character and a transcendent landscape that invite readers along on an emotionally satisfying journey.

  • A simple and poignant story about the universal longing to connect with others
  • A young girl beautifully crosses the line from the real world into that of fantasy to share her song with the moon 
  • Beginning with Kate DiCamillo's words and vision, this rich and graphic story allows Jamie Kim's illustrations to fully imagine the story and bring it to life
