by Cat Min

"Shinbi is not a particularly ghosty ghost. At night, she likes making tiny bouquets of things, and gazing at the far away stars. Haunting? Not so much. Even if thatโ€™s what the other ghosts like.

In the daytime, in a meadow, sits a single rock, casting a single shadow, named Greem. Heโ€™d really like someone to talk to. But who? He writes one word on his lonely rock: โ€œHiโ€ and hopes someone will see it. Sure enough, in the darkness of night, Shinbi finds the note! But who could have written it?

In a profound exploration of how friendship can break through barriers of time and circumstance, Cat Min introduces us to two unforgettable characters weโ€™d all love to know.


โ˜… โ€œWill leave viewers in awe. May the stars align for young readers to share this heartwarming picture book with their precious friends no matter how far apart they are."

โ€”Bulletin of the Center for Childrenโ€™s Books (starred)

โ€œA joyful celebration of friendship, the stars, and finding oneโ€™s self in this world and beyond.โ€


โ€œWhat a stunning book! A clever and sweet story of finding a friend with gorgeous, whimsical illustrations.โ€
