Comments for Attic of the Wind
Attic of the Wind is one of a number of library discards I picked up for Sean and Harriet at the last BookCrossing meeting. I was drawn to this book both for the title and for the whimsical watercolor and line drawn illustrations.
The book is written in verse and is basically a sentimental piece about all those inanimate things we grow fond of and then misplace. It's basically the What Dreams May Come for kipple. As a somewhat jaded packrat, the book is a bit too schmaltzy for my tastes but I do still love Ati Forberg's illustrations. and will keep the book for the artwork.
Sean was also drawn to the illustrations and had fun pointing out all the different things including bubbles, snowflakes, kites and balloons. Harriet liked the rhythm of the poetry. She loves to be read to and would probably be happiest if I read to her all her waking hours.
