My very dear friend Sue Gordon always gives me a symbolic gift to celebrate the launch of each of my books. Here is the one she made for Lost Boy. It is metaphorical on 3 levels.
- The boy has no ‘face’ as he is lost.
- He hits ‘rock bottom’ in the story. (He is made of rocks)
- He’s in the shape of an inuksuk, which are featured in the story.
Isn’t she clever?
Here is the shelf in my office with many of the other ‘new book gifts’ she’s given to me.
She is the creative one! And I am blessed with her friendship.
