Written and Illustrated by Award Winning Illustrator Helene Magisson

Long listed ABIA Small Publishers' Children' Book of The Year 2021

Loukta is a brilliant puppet maker.

All of his creations work perfectly just as he expects them to.

Except for Claudette. She is a rickety misfit who longs for freedom and adventure. What can be done with such a puppet? Loukta doesn't know.

So Claudette stays on the shelf.

Until one incredible day...

This is Hélène Magisson first solo picture book!
