Description
ONE DAY, MR. Bambert, a sweet but shy man, decides to send 11 stories out into the world. He attaches them to little hot-air balloons and lets them go on windy nights with a letter asking that whoever finds them send them back. Wherever the stories are returned from is where they will be set. The 11th story is blank-- Bambert hopes it will write itself. Slowly the stories come back, with postmarks from all over the world, including one from the past. All that's left is the last one, the one that has to write itself. . . .
In this magical little story with a twist, the power of kindness, stories, and hope is woven together to create a soul-warming, poignant tale that readers will want to read again and again.
Praise for "Dreaming in Black and White":
" A short, quiet, yet memorable, novel that challenges its audience with questions worth asking." -- "Booklist"
