A poignant story about love, loss and legacy. One son, one family, one photo. From Ross Watkins, the author of The Boy Who Grew Into a Tree, and talented illustrator, Liz Anelli.

Dad came home one day with one of those old cameras, the kind that use film. But Dad didn't take photos of the regular things people photograph . . .

Told in stunning prose, with creative heart-warming illustrations, this book is a celebration of what we hold closest to our hearts.
