Hope - cover

The Story:
Finn loves his dog, Comet, they do everything together. But when Comet gets sick and has to stay with the vet, Finn finds himself all alone and feeling very sad. Then his dad shows him the light: when you’re sad and feeling helpless, you can always hope. And Finn “hopes hard”. Will his beloved Comet return? Finn hopes so…

Favourite Spread:
The illustrations in this book are brilliant. Sébastien brings the emotional journey of this story to life, starting with happy illustrations of Finn and Comet.

Hope 1

(Torch) light is used as a metaphor for hope throughout the story and Sébastien’s clever use of colour and layering brings the message to life.

Hope 4

I loved every illustration, but this was perhaps my favourite:

Hope 3

The Verdict:
This is an emotive and uplifting story that will have you rooting for Comet and Finn (and Hope!) from the start. Corinne and Sébastien’s use of light as a metaphor for hope is excellent and makes this a book you will find yourself wanting to read over and over again.
