Carolinda Clatter by Mordicai Gerstein published by Roaring Brook A giant's unrequited love with the moon causes him to cry himself to sleep. After a thousand years, his eyes became two ponds. His tears became two waterfalls. His beard and the hair on his head became forests. You'll wake the giant. Can this boisterous girl find the song to soothe his broken heart? This book is a delight to read aloud if you can manage the catch in your throat on the last few pages with an original plot and pictures that capture all the colors and moods of this magical man and mountain.
As always, Gerstein's work captures something deep; not just the lightning bug, but the glow of the lightning bug, not just the tear, but the salt, and in this noisy book is the whisper of things universal: the need to be loved, the need to be ourselves, the need for peace.
In the body of work of this gentle giant called Gerstein, this title is one of the great romances of children's literature and is not to be overlooked.
