Synopsis

There by Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick

When will I get There? How will I know? A little girl ponders what the future holds, steadfast in her determination to find out for herself. Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick's gorgeous landscapes and her briefest of text speak to the power of imagination. Readers of all ages will find reassurance in this simple, beautiful book of ruminations about a lifelong journey toward tomorrow.

Reviews

Readers of all ages will appreciate this layered tale and feel the poignancy of her decision to cease her questioning and live in the moment. Starred, Publishers Weekly

Thought-provoking and comforting, this selection leaves room for high-minded existential interpretation but still has an innocence that is childlike and accessible as it addresses the pleasures and pitfalls of growing up. Kirkus Reviews

There is a book for rumination, a rare permission to ask the unanswerable questions. The thoughts that propel it and the images that illuminate it make this volume a small wonder for children. School Library Journal

Vibrant double-page spreads create a spacious setting for this peripatetic story of a young girl pondering a big question: When will I get There?' Booklist
