Once Upon a Memory

From bestselling author Nina Laden and bestselling illustrator Renata Liwska comes an enchanting, imaginative story for fans of They All Saw a Cat.

Does a feather remember it once was a bird? Does a book remember it once was a word?
A boy is swept away to a world where fantasy and reality come together in surprising and playful ways. From the cake that once was grain to the ocean that once was rain, whimsical before and after scenes offer readers a peek at the world as seen through the eyes of a curious child.

Nina Laden’s poetic and cleverly woven text is perfectly paired with artist Renata Liwska’s captivating illustrations.
