Jack and the Ghost (Chan Poling and Lucy Michell)Chan Poling and Lucy Michell will be at Fair Trade Books on Sunday, April 5 at noon for a signing of their new book, Jack and the Ghost.

 

In a tale weird and whimsical, as familiar as folklore and as strange as life itself, musical artists Chan Poling and Lucy Michell create a world where even the most hardened soul has to see that grief may be tough, but life is tougher.

 

"Jack and the Ghost is a gorgeously illustrated meditation on grief and loss, a poignant reminder to not let the ghosts of the past control the present." —Jeremy Messersmith

 

"The poetic pacing of the sorrowful story conjures the fancy that it would be best read out loud in a pub, fireside, with a storm battering the windows." —Publishers Weekly

 

"If there’s justice in the world, they have a hit on their hands. This ‘children’s book for adults,’ as Poling calls it, is a bittersweet story of loss, grief, and the power of love to make things right again. It’s a wonderful read and Michell’s illustrations are enchanting." —MinnPost
