Thanks to Mr B,  I now have The heart and the bottle in my growing collection of Oliver Jeffers’ books. Unlike his previous books of whimsical nature, this one is more poignant as it explores the theme of love, loss and coming to terms with grief. The message does hit close to home so if you’re a sentimental heart like me, have some tissues nearby.

I’m also thrilled to learn there’s an upcoming major motion picture based on this book. I can’t wait for its release. Meanwhile, enjoy the book!
