It’s the end of the school year for the little girl and her black cat. Images capture the moment, like a photograph. Over this book’s double page spreads, we follow our two small protagonists through a multitude of summer vacation scenes, various locations, activities and outfit changes. But it’s the same thing every time: strike a pose, look straight ahead, stop moving, and then click… The moment is captured forever! Our young protagonists don’t exactly seem thrilled – they would certainly rather be splashing around, running or playing – but the person striving to keep these beautiful souvenirs of life feels much tenderness.
