About this product
- DescriptionThe internationally acclaimed author of <i>The House on Mango Street </i>gives us a deeply moving tale of loss, grief, and healing: a lyrically told, richly illustrated fable for grown-ups about a woman s search for a cat who goes missing in the wake of her mother s death. The word orphan might t seem to apply to a fifty-three-year-old woman. Yet this is exactly how Sandra feels as she finds herself motherless, alone like a glove left behind at the bus station. What just might save her is her search for someone else gone missing: Marie, the black-and-white cat of her friend, Roz, who ran off the day they arrived from Tacoma. As Sandra and Roz scour the streets of San Antonio, posting flyers and asking everywhere, Have you seen Marie? the pursuit of this one small creature takes on unexpected urgency and meaning. With full-color illustrations that bring this transformative quest to vivid life, <i>Have You Seen Marie?</i> showcases a beloved author s storytelling magic, in a tale that reminds us how love, even when it goes astray, does t stay lost forever.
