About the Book

"This gem of a book will resonate with older siblings everywhere." --School Library Journal When Flora and her pesky little brother, Crispin, are whisked away by a swirling and swooping wind, she gets the opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to give her brother away. With tempting offers from a dragonfly, the man in the moon, and even the wind itself, she will find it difficult to choose. But Flora would do anything to get rid of Crispin, wouldn’t she?  

Critical Praise

"The story's sense and wit are most fully expressed in the text, but the character's actions and emotions are most memorably portrayed in the artwork... A fine picture book with a fierce, bold, and (deep down) compassionate heroine."—Booklist

"Emotionally true from cover to cover."—Kirkus Reviews, STARRED review

"Birdsall's crisp and delightful first picture book....believable characters, a tightly constructed story line, and a nod to past children's literature."—Publishers Weekly
"This gem of a book will resonate with older siblings everywhere."—School Library Journal
