Five toys wait on the windowsill, but what are they waiting for? Finely crafted watercolor and colored pencil illustrations depict a charming exploration of a part of childhood that is often difficult.
For years, Zach, Poppy, and Alice have played a fantasy game of imagination and adventure. As they begin middle school, Zach faces pressure to quit the game. To save the game and their friendship, the friends undertake their creepiest adventure yet—to bury a haunted doll and avoid her curse.
A gentle lesson about friendship and a lot of laughs are tucked into 6 ½ short chapters about Amanda, her stuffed alligator, and an interloping panda bear…all presented with panache in Willem’s signature style and highly expressive cartoons.
