When her best friend, Hector, moves away, intrepid young Juna gathers things from nature to put in her jar, just like she used to do with Hector. But with every attempt she makes, the fish, the plant, the cricket all grow too big for the jar, just like her friendship with Hector. This girl’s dreamlike imagination runs wild as she ventures to find her friend; muted colors and her big, welcoming face giving the story a cutesy yet modern vibe. In her search for companionship, Juna shows just how much heart she really has. Ages five and up.
