As a summer evening descends, three young children see a shadow appear on their wall. When the shadow flutters away, they follow it into the backyard, where more playful shadows await. As the children begin to race them along the garden, they find that the shadows move swiftly, and are always just out of reach. But when home calls them to bed, the children can dream of a new day full of possibilities.
Elly MacKay's much anticipated follow-up picture book features her luminous paper-cut illustrations with simple, lyrical text. The idea that hopes and dreams keep us moving forward, and that one must be bold in order to go after them, are brought to life in this magical and timeless story.
