Hello Sailor (Attendre un matelot) is one of the nicest children's books I've read in years!A moving story of hope and friendship. Matt lives in a lighthouse. He watches the sea every day...for ships and for his friend, Sailor. Matt is so forlorn that Sailor has gone away that he almost forgets his own birthday. But, his friends say Sailor will never come back, but Matt doesn't give up hope. And, after his birthday party is over, his patience is rewarded, when Sailor finally returns.
Great to find a children's book that steps outside the confined boundaries of mainstream sexuality.
