A spare, poignant picture book reminding us that when someone looks lonely and in need of a friend, one little word can help.
A lone dog comes upon a group of kids playing ball and with leaping ease, joins the game. They’re all having so much fun, they don’t see a sad little boy standing off by himself. Who will spy the boy and invite him to play? With arresting images by a master illustrator and a simple, touching text by his son, SAY HELLO evokes the joy and relief of finding a new friend just when it’s needed the most.
Jack Foreman is studying art history in college. This, his first book, is based on a heartfelt poem he wrote when he was about ten about his own experience of being bullied in school. He lives in London.
Michael Foreman is one of the world’s leading illustrators. He is the author-illustrator of MIA'S STORY, MICHAEL FOREMAN'S PLAYTIME RHYMES, and many other children’s books. He lives in London.
A beautiful pairing of...sparse rhyming text...[and] simple drawings.
