A girl preparing to visit her seriously ill uncle in the hospital imagines being a skywriter and flying over his bed with a message of love.

From the Inside Flap:

r winner Mavis Jukes's highly praised picture book is reissued
with a new jacket and in a more appealing trim size.

“With the brilliant colors of a wild sunset sky, this picture book expresses the exhilaration of flying a plane and connects that power with a sense of fragility and grief. A small girl, like Amelia Earhart, takes off in a biplane, like a moth at dusk, and skywrites 'I love you' and 'goodbye' in the clouds as a message for her terminally ill young uncle in his hospital room. But then it turns out her flight is imaginary; she's really a passenger, with her mother, on a big, crowded jet on her way to visit the hospital. . . . Without sentimentality or falseness, the spare, echoing words make death a part of the 'rise and fall' of life.”—Booklist, Starred
From the Hardcover edition.
