Fortunately, one day Ned got a letter which said, “You’re invited to a surprise party, we look forward to seeing you there!” But unfortunately, the party was in Florida, and he was in New York. Fortunately, a friend lent him an aeroplane. Unfortunately, the plane’s engine blew up. Fortunately, there was a parachute on the plane. Unfortunately, there was a hole in the parachute. Fortunately, there was a hay bale on the ground… Up and down, a rollercoaster of feelings and sensations. The downs are breath-taking and make your heart pound. The ups make you feel better and alive again. With illustrations that are as delicate and as light as the texts, Remy Charlip’s book is a true gift to all those children who want to grow up. And to all of us too. In a whisper, he modestly reminds us that it isn’t always springtime. But also, that winter doesn’t last forever.
