the perfect gift... the perfect gift
in search for the perfect gift this week, i thougt it would make perfect sense to share with you "the perfect gift" by jamaican artist rohan henry. his book represents a simple and touching story of love and friendship. leo and lisa are longtime best friends, and Leo wants to give her that one special gift to show her how he feels. the first leaf of autumn, the most delicate snowflake ever, an exquisite spring butterfly—but none of them endures. so Leo sets off in search of the perfect gift.
with charming black-and-white illustrations accented with a second color, the book conveys its message with simplicity and grace. rohan has created a timeless parable of friendship that will enchant children and adults alike—and delight anyone who receives this perfect gift. we hope you will enjoy it and can certaintly pick up your copy of "the perfect gift" at Pink Olive.
