‘Izzy and Frank made my heart squeeze up and my tummy do little emotional flip flops of nostalgia and love and some other kind of adoring feeling I can’t pin down … This little book packs an emotional wallop to rival the most grown up novel. Katrina Lehman’s prose, sprinkled with deft moments of poetry, is a delight to hear and say. And Sophie Beer’s rich Pantone-infused illustrations are warm and winsome and rippling with joy, recalling the best children’s art of the 1960s and now combined. There is no separating the story from its illustrations; they work hand in hand to draw out hidden significances and bonus details to explore what it means to lose and then find hope again. This one is truly delicious in every moment. Buy or borrow it for your favourite people.’ — Danielle, Half Deserted Streets
Katrina lives in Melbourne with her three children, a gardener/baker/handyman husband, and a blue tongue lizard. She is lucky enough to spend all day crafting words as a writer and as an editor, helping authors unleash their inner magic.
