For Noah, who is grieving, familiar sights take on new, morose dimensions. For brave Mia, a girl without a home, her cat’s adventure is worth an open tag-along. Destiny—and the love of their furry companions—brings Noah and Mia, and their different forms of longing, together in this delicate early reader set in erstwhile times. The book’s illustrations are a marvel, both soft and replete with involving details, like Noah’s messy hair, a rotund villain, and the dark swamps of dreams.
