A story about friendship and shyness, full of light and colour, that plays out in a mini theatre

Elise was frightened—of spiders, people, even trees. So she never went out, night or day. One day a strange thing flies in through the window and lands at her feet. And then there comes a knock at the door.

Elise has a visitor who will change everything. This is a gentle, sympathetic story about a child who unwittingly brings light and colour—literally—into a lonely person’s life.

Industry Reviews

"A touching, understated story about the transformative power of friendship."
Kirkus Reviews

"Simply gorgeous in pictures and words, this is a terrific read-aloud selection and a great story to spark conversation."
School Library Journal, starred review

"Damm emphasizes how much people need others to care about, and readers will enjoy going back over the pages to see how the colors change."
Publishers Weekly

"What makes it striking is Damm's nifty, expressive art, photographs of dioramas and cutout painted figures."
