Newbery Award-winning author Jerry Spinelli's sweet and lyrical text and LeUyen Pham's charming illustrations show the timeless love between a mother and her children.
When Mama Seeton whistles, her children run home for chocolate cake, hugs, kisses, and shared memories. But as time passes, they travel further and further away from the familiar sound. Can mama's whistle be heard all over the world, and bring her children home one more time?
* "Spinelli and Pham make beautiful music together, creating an unabashedly old-fashioned family fable that should leave readers of all ages snuggling a little closer to one another."
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
* "Fun and memories mix here, delightfully demonstrating the old adage, there's no place like home."
—Booklist, starred review
