Olofsdotter, Marie Sofia and the Heartmender
Minneapolis, Minnesota Free Spirit Publishing 1993 0915793504 / 9780915793501 Second Printing Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket
Illustrated by Olofsdotter, Marie (illustrator)
Bottom right corner looks crimped, slight soiling to boards. Some little dents (or perhaps tiny teeth marks) in a couple places on bottom edge. Overall a bright, clean copy.
"When Sofia sees shadow-monsters on her wall at night, her parents dismiss her fears as silly. When she tries to draw her monsters at school, her teacher tells her to stop wasting paper and draw flowers instead. Sad and lonely, her heart broken in two, Sofia leaves school and enters a mysterious world where a Heartmender waits to make her heart whole again."
Lovely evocative color illustrations by the author.
