  • When Aunt Mattie Got Her Wings

    When Aunt Mattie Got Her Wings
    Lottie the Chicken deals with the loss of Aunt Mattie in this gently sad and sweetly funny picture book that explores the death of a loved one, in the tradition of Judith Viorst’s The Tenth Good Thing about Barney. Aunt Mattie has died. But before she went, she got to say good-bye to Lottie. Then she got to follow a light to a bustling gate. (A gate that sounded a lot like a busy airport!) And there she found a crew of friends who were waiting to take off with her on a new journey. Will Lottie and Herbie be able to overcome their sadness? They will, with time, and by taking a journey of their own—a journey filled with a little heartache, a lot of happiness, and a batch of Aunt Mattie’s favorite peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches. (With bananas, of course!)

In between, she sends kiss-filled letters to Mami via Otto the mailman. And one day soon, she knows they will be together again. The illustrations in Petra Mathers's lovingly drawn memoir have irresistible folkloric charm. Here's a book straight from the heart--certain to strike a chord in anyone who's ever been homesick or separated from a loved one.
