A timeless and universal tale that celebrates the bond created between a little girl and the special place she returns to year after year—and how their relationship changes as she grows up.

The little blue cottage waits each year for summer to arrive—and with it, the girl. Through sunny days and stormy weather, the cottage and the girl keep each other company and wile away the long days and nights together. Until one year, and then another, the cottage is left waiting and empty season after season.

In this heartfelt story about change, Kelly Jordan’s lilting text and Jessica Courtney-Tickle's lush art captures the essence of cherishing a favorite place.

KELLY JORDAN has a journalism degree from the University of Georgia and spends her days as a communications manager and magazine editor. She lives with her husband in Decatur, Georgia, and regularly visits her family’s little blue cottage in Florida. This is her picture book debut.

JESSICA COURTNEY-TICKLE studied illustration and animation with a focus in children’s picture books at Kingston University. A freelance illustrator, she especially loves creating nature scenes. She lives in Cambridge, UK.
