STARRED REVIEW Booklist - There Was a Hole

Cover: There Was a Hole

“O’Neill’s gentle illustrations add to the story’s growing feeling of connection and hope, bringing both Lily’s feelings and her patches to life. Although the pictures hint vaguely at a more specific loss, the spare language is broad and inclusive. This book can be a tremendous help to children who have big, difficult-to-manage feelings for any reason, including grief or depression. Despite the weighty subject matter, the story has a calming effect. For many children, it will help start the process of patching their own hole.”
