Little Thisbe adores animals of all kinds. Going to the zoo is one of her favorite pastimes, but Thisbe has been very sick for a long time. Eventually, she is confined to her bed, unable to take trips to see her animal friends – unable to take trips anywhere, for that matter. That is, until Thisbe’s mother shows her the magical view outside her bedroom window, opening up the walls that seem to confine her. Soft, imaginative illustrations take the reader soaring across hills, valleys, and oceans, capturing the power of a mother’s love and a mother’s desire to keep every promise.
