From the superb, creative duo behind Drawing on Walls, A Life of Keith Haring comes this adventurous, expressive, heartfelt story about the tremendous role played by creativity across life and death.

Someletters can’t be delivered in the usual way… But Sylvester has it all figuredout: couriered by some energetic parachutists, a train speeding through thejungle, and a river packed with piranhas and pink dolphins, his letter is sureto reach its final destination.Andwhat makes this letter so important? It’s full of loving memories and sharedmoments, written specially by Sylvester for his beloved G.G. (Great Grandma). Even though G.G.is now gone, she’s still Sylvester’s favorite person—the most pickle-loving andfun person he knows. A picture book about how love and imagination connect usbeyond death and keep the spirit of those who are no longer with us alive.
