About the book
Charming, timeless parable of friendship, in the tradition of Shel Silverstein’s beloved stories
The perfect gift for adults and children alike
In the tradition of Shel Silverstein’s beloved stories, Jamaican artist Rohan Henry presents a simple and touching story of love and friendship. Leo and Lisa are longtime best friends, and Leo wants to give her that one special gift to show her how he feels. The first leaf of autumn, the most delicate snowflake ever, an exquisite spring butterfly—but none of them endures. So Leo sets off in search of the perfect gift.

With charming black-and-white illustrations accented with a second color, the book conveys its message with simplicity and grace. Rohan has created a timeless parable of friendship that will enchant children and adults alike—and delight anyone who receives this perfect gift.
