Lindström, Eva

Everyone Walks Away

(3) K-3 With few words and expansive space in her illustrations, Lindström tells the story of lonely Frank. While three peers play together, "Frank goes home and cries into a pot." He turns those tears into sweet jam and invites the others (who've been watching Frank's activities) to a tea party. Lindström uses muted colors and odd angles to express Frank's sadness and turn toward hope in this powerful, understated picture book.
