An album about love, loss, reconstruction
Waves - Ingrid Chabbert

 Written by:Ingrid Chabbert (and illustrated by Carole Maurel)

 Length: 99 pages

 Format: ebook (Hoopla)

 Release Date:01-05-19

After years of difficulty trying to have children, a young couple finally announce their pregnancy, only to have the most joyous day of their lives replaced with one of unexpected heartbreak. Their relationship is put to the test as they forge ahead, working together to rebuild themselves amidst the churning tumult of devastating loss, and ultimately facing the soul-crushing reality that they may never conceive a child of their own. Based on author Ingrid Chabbert’s own experience, coupled with soft, sometimes dreamlike illustrations by Carole Maurel (Luisa: Now and Then), Waves is a deeply moving story that poignantly captures a woman’s exploration of her pain in order to rediscover hope.

Waves by Ingrid Chabbert  is ❝ an album about love, loss, reconstruction.❞

 

This is a piece of art in each purest form. It documents the story of an incredible loss and how much effort it takes to get back on your feet.. You feel like you are drowing and you might not want to save yourself. There are always people that love you and want to help you to the best of their abilities.

The healing process comes in waves and I really liked the subtle way the artist was hinting that: as the color was returning little by little in the pages.

Even though this was a short read, it will stay with me. Thank you dear Ingrid for being brave enough to share your story.

Waves - Ingrid Chabbert

Waves was a beautifully told story about hope and loss and what it takes to find hope again. The story floats as much as you would expect from the title. The illustrations were really nice and for me they helped a lot to make the story more powerful and added much to the story.

While it was a quick read for me, it was one that stayed with me for quite some days, so I was very glad Netgalley granted my wish on this one.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

The day I became a bird
The Day I Became a Bird - Ingrid Chabbert,Raúl Nieto Guridi

by Ingrid Chabbert

illustrated by Raúl Nieto Guridi

age range: 3 to 6 years old

Kids Can Press

 

A boy falls in love with a girl in the first day of school, but Sylvia is only interested in birds, so he decides to became one. The boy makes a wonderful bird costume, and wears it to school every single day, which proves to be a challenging task. Sylvia only notices him when the boy's face appears through a hole in the worn out costume.

I liked the story because of the potential I saw in it, but I found it kind of lacking in the overall. The semi-open end didn't work for me. Sylvia didn't notice the boy when he was just a boy, nor when he was just a bird, but when in some way he was both. I would have liked to understand why was that. The illustrations are original and beautiful, all in greys scale.

I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
