What is this picture book about?
Outside, the world is bursting with colour, light and wonder. But inside the house, Daddy has a big secret. A dark shadow is following him around, and it just won't leave him alone.
From the park to the breakfast table, Daddy's shadow continues to threaten and overwhelm him. Jokes aren't funny to him anymore. He won't come out to play. His sunshine has been stolen, and there's no telling when it will come back - that is until a particularly driven daughter shines her brightest lights into the dark.
Effortless and enchanting poetry, combined with otherworldly watercolour illustrations, this powerful and uplifting book is for anyone who has ever been overcome by sadness or witnessed the dark shadow of depression take hold.
Above all, though, it's for those who know that love and support can make all the difference.
