It's Only Ink! The Tear Thief

It's Only Ink!
The Tear Thief

"The Tear Thief", as old as joy and sorrow, is a beautiful girl who waits and listens for crying children. Invisible to all and only seen in puddles, she silently slips into their rooms and snatches their tears. She plops them into her silvery waterproof sack. Each tear has a different color: red ones are angry tears, green like emeralds glowed for envy or jealousy, turquoise-colored tears were for self-pit, guilty tears sparkled amber while white tears shone like moonstones.
In need of tears of sadness, "The Tear Thief" searches on. Why does she need sadness tears? Find out by getting "The Tear Thief" by Carol Ann Duffy today.
Duffy's beautiful story brings the world of magic to life. My children smiled and seemed to gaze into the tear thief's world after I finished and closed the book. But the story alone wasn't the only reason their thoughts drifted, Nicoletta Ceccoli's soft, dreamy illustrations compliment Duffy's story giving it an enchanting appeal.
I highly recommend "The Tear Thief" by Carol Ann Duffy for parents and children everywhere.
