Synopsis

One More Candle by Merry Susiarjo

Nola is just over a year younger than her sister Betty, and they decide to have one big, shared birthday party every year rather than each having a smaller one. But poor Nola gets upset that Betty always has one more candle than her, and fruitlessly seeks help from all the light-giving things she finds in the world outside. But just as she begins to accept the reality of their different ages, the solution comes as an enchantingly simple surprise. Emmeline Pidgen's authentic and imaginative illustrations bring this sweet and gentle picture book story magically to life.

About the Author

Merry Susiarjo has a travelling spirit, a love of nature and strong family bonds that all feed into her writing. Born in Indonesia in 1979 and grew up there until the age of fifteen with her two brothers and two sisters, the dynamics, conflicts and affections of the family started to inspire her at a young age. Now living in France with a husband and three children of her own, she can appreciate sibling relationships as an observer as well as a sister. Her imagination is wonderful in the true sense of the world, her stories ripe with vivid contemplations of childhood that take the reader through the magic of discovery, nature and family love.
