What Is Love?

$20.00

"What is love?" a young boy asks. "I can't answer that," his grandmother says, and so the boy goes out into the world to find out. But while each person he meets—the fisherman, the actor, and others—has an answer to his question, not one seems quite right. Could love really be a fish, or applause, or the night? Or could it actually be something much closer to home?

This tender, funny tale is an original take on the "I love you" story, a picture book treasure for all ages to read and cherish.

A wonderful narrative voice and spectacular pictures give this book the feel of a modern classic. Many books about the love between parents and children are told from an adult's point of view. This book begins from the child's perspective, and it's funny and unexpected in ways that children can relate to while being thoughtful in ways adults appreciate. Like all great children's books, this book can be understood on many levels.
