Synopsis

Book two in the award-winning Kingdom of Silk series. A friend like Layla comes along once in a lifetime. Griffin's Daddy used to say that Layla had been sent to comfort them after Tishkin went away, 'like an arm about their shoulders, a candle in the dark or like golden syrup dumplings for the soul'. When Senior Citizens' Day is announced at school, Layla wishes for someone special to take. It is then that the intriguing Miss Amelie comes into their lives. Through their new friendship, Layla and Griffin learn the importance of memories, generosity of spirit, and the small miracles that warm the heart. REVIEWS: "Poignant and lovely. Millard has that rare gift of making you feel in a few pages that you've known these characters, and this place, always." -- INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY (BEST CHILDREN'S BOOKS). "A beautiful and touching story about an unusual friendship...A delicate and thoughtful read." -- PARENTS IN TOUCH. "Beautiful, dream-like and atmospheric drawings from illustrator Stephen Michael King complement Millard's unforgettable and ethereal story which is ideal to read aloud to younger children and guaranteed to delight all generations of the family."
