By: Carson Ellis and Mac Barnett

For Ages: 3+ years old


'What is love?' a young boy asks. 'I can't answer that,' his grandmother says, and so the boy goes out into the world to find out. But while each person he meets – the fisherman, the actor, and others – has an answer to his question, not one seems quite right. Could love really be a fish, or applause, or the night? Or could it actually be something much closer to home?

This tender, funny tale is an original take on the 'I love you' story, a picture book treasure for all ages to read and cherish.
