The Whisper

The Whisper by Pamela Zagarenski is a stupendous work of imagination. Illustrations with gorgeous jewel box colors frame a tale of possibilities, as a young girl discovers her ability to tell tales after initially losing the words she thinks she needs. A dreamscape harbors mystical, magical stories--each one more beautiful than the last. Pay attention to the fox who is cleverly integrated into a satisfying ending that just might be an improvement on Aesop. Highly recommended particularly for the stunning paintings.
