Paper Planes

Mia and Ben are the very best of friends. They live side by side at the edge of a great, wide lake. Together they sail, swing, and sing. But what they love doing most of all is making paper planes. They dream of one day being able to make a plane that can fly all the way across the lake! But Ben has terrible news: he and his family are moving far away. How are Mia and Ben going to stay best friends if they're going to be so far apart? And will flying paper planes ever be the same again without Ben?

From the author and illustrator team who gave readers The Snow Lion comes a compassionate and lyrical story of staying in touch after a friend has moved away. Gorgeous illustrations accompany a gentle story about long-distance friendship that is filled with magic and imagination.

Description

"Helmore modulates emotions well as the girl’s loneliness turns to resentment: 'Mia took the plane Ben had given her and smashed it on the ground./ She went to bed, feeling hurt and angry.' A nighttime fancy — in which Mia and Ben fly in each other’s planes above the lake ('They swooped/ and skimmed/ and soared') — and a special package lead to a satisfying resolution, proving that distance need not ruin a strong friendship. Expansive and warm with emotion, Jones’s illustrations lend dreamy poignancy to Helmore’s straightforward prose. A familiar childhood challenge surmounted with well-pitched emotional resonance from the creators of The Snow Lion." — Publishers Weekly
