Quiet, realistic and beautiful, this picture book about a child with special needs gives new meaning to the word special. One of the most striking aspects of this book is the love that exudes from its pages. Catherine’s family loves her dearly and she loves them back in her own special way. Frances learns how Catherine, her disabled cousin, is quite gifted in her own way. The watercolours mesh perfectly with the touching story. This is a beautiful story, one that will tell little ones just how special some people really are.
