"A lush, haunting story that brings together a grandmother and her grandchild. . . . Captures the luminosity of both the sky and the people on earth striving to make the world a better place." -- Booklist (starred review)
Little Suhaila wishes she could have known her grandma, who would wrap her arms around the whole world if she could, Mama says. And one night, Suhaila gets her wish when a golden ladder appears at her window and Grandma Annie invites the girl to come along with her on a magical journey. Renowned translator Teresa Mlawer has translated this dreamlike tale into Spanish, reminding us that loved ones lost are always with us, and that sometimes we need only look at the moon to remember.
