About the Author:

Allan Peterkin, MD, is a Toronto-based physician and writer. He is Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Family Medicine and Head of the Health, Arts, and Humanities at the University of Toronto. Dr. Peterkin is the author of several children's books, including What About Me? When Brothers and Sisters Get Sick, also published by Magination Press.

Emmeline Pidgen is a UK-based illustrator who you'll rarely find without a pencil and sketchbook in her hands. Emmeline graduated in 2010 from University College Falmouth, and is now making her way through the jungle of the freelance world, trading snippets of her imagination so she can buy cereal, floral teacups, and dinosaur toys.

Review:

In a sensitive lullaby, a small boy and
his mother hang the laundry to dry on the clothesline, as she sings, time to fly, touch the sky, fly up, high up, wave goodbye. Jake doesn t want to let go of his
comforting blue blanket, but his mother assures him that it will soon be dry. As they sit together in the sun, Jake falls asleep, and a gust of wind sends the blanket sailing. First it brushed against the apple tree, where a mother bird was feeding
her babies, and it soon warms a shivering calf, tickles turnip-munching bunnies, and is used by a puppy and its mother for tug-of-war. After a final gust, the mother bird tugs the blanket down to earth, right to where it belonged, encircling
Jake and his mother in a cozy embrace. Pidgen s cheerful artwork is reassuring, with a bright palette, loose, sweeping lines, and plenty of attention on mother-child tenderness, human and animal
alike. The message about attachment, security, and sometimes letting go is conveyed subtly and organically. Ages 4 8. (Nov.) --Publishers Weekly, October 17, 2011
