Allen & Unwin
Adelaide's Secret World
by Elise Hurst
(Allen & Unwin, Australia) HARDBACK
Adelaide leads a quiet life in the midst of the city. At night she listens to the song of the stars, but during the day she watches over the others like her: the still ones, the quiet ones, those who dance and dream alone.
Little does Adelaide know that her secret world will soon be transformed into something unexpected and full of joy.
A story about courage, change and finding your soul mates.
“Masterful... These portraits of animals struggling with human feelings startle with their emotional exactitude, empathy, and expert execution. Complex feelings articulated through heart-rending paintings that beg return visits.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
