Today I’m really thrilled to be able to give away two copies of a new children’s book that deals with the subject of loss and grief called My Big, Dumb Invisible Dragon by my friend and one-time colleague Angie Lucas.
Angie was my managing editor at one time back in they hey day of Simple Scrapbooks magazine, which I would guess a few of you out there used to read. Here is a photo of Angie, hard at word in her office in Bluffdale, Utah. (I’m sure she’s going to LOVE me for this!)
I’m quite certain I told her, “LOOK CONTEMPLATIVE!
Here is Angie 10 years later (along with her dragon she’s named Sorg), and truth be told, I want some of whatever youth serum she’s drinking.
I have read Angie’s book a handful of times, and with each reading, I’m more moved than the last time and more amazed at how tenderly she has written about loss. I think this book would be wonderful in any library, both for children and for adults. Loss is part of life and Angie has created a beautiful story around this subject. It is truly a tale of healing and hope.
The illustrations by Birgitta Sif are dreamy and magical… the perfect visuals to really bring Angie’s loving story to life.
Here is reading of Angie’s book by a 7-year-old narrator named Eben:
I’m so very proud of my friend and wanted to share this beautiful book with all of my readers.
