‘The heart and the bottle’ by Oliver Jeffers, is a beautiful story of a girl who’s curious imaginative world fades after the loss of someone very close to her. She decides to put her heart in a bottle to protect it from getting hurt again, but soon realises that it cannot stay in there forever.

This lovely well thought out book, tackles a difficult subject in a delicate and moving way. It reminds us all, big or small that in order to LIVE we have to FEEL.
