Appeared on Best of 2018 lists from Pitchfork, Quill & Quire, and 100 Scope Notes!

"Before Geneviève Castrée passed away, she wrote this heart-wrenching story for her daughter... The most heartbreaking book of 2018."--100 Scope Notes

"[A] heartbreaking last work."--Pitchfork

"[A Bubble] is beautiful... The art Castrée made is testimony: to the joys of growing older, and to the price."--The Paris Review

"This board book - exploring the poignant relationship between a dying mother and her toddler-aged child - has to be one of the most heartbreaking works we have ever read."--Quill & Quire

"A masterfully understated evocation of filial love and impending loss, its title an uncannily apt dual metaphor for a family's self-created safe space and a mother's fragile condition."--Montreal Gazette

"Castrée's book is a work of unbelievable dedication and care... A truly magnificent work of art."--Women's Review of Books

"Castrée's delicate, detailed artwork, in warm, rich colors, reveals charming details of day-to-day life... Though the subject matter is tough, this thoughtfully written book, which ends on a hopeful note despite Castrée's death in 2016, might be just right to share with little ones struggling to come to terms with a parent's infirmity."--Booklist
