When a young girl moves to a new home, feeling lost and lonely as her mother is too busy, she discovers a new friend, a shadow under her bed. Together they find mystery and adventure around every corner. Shadows are everywhere. Lost in the woods together she finds a glimmer of light as her mother finds her, lost and lonely. They stand present in the moment, together for the first time.
Shadow is a beautiful tale of isolation, but ultimately a sense of hope and togetherness. Written by Lucy Christopher, inspired by her own experiences of loneliness as a child. The illustration of Anastasia Suvorova begins dark and grey and lifts to a brighter colour palette as the story evolves. A wonderful tale of finding light and hope in a time of darkness.
