Praise

[Grace is] a name befitting the quiet solemnity of a story that highlights the everyday wonders of human experience, lovingly depicted in Graham’s characteristically humorous, soft ink-and-watercolor illustrations. Amazing.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Somehow, in typical Graham fashion, all the stories matter, and they all build to a moment that Francie “would remember forever”…The message is clear (see also the John Updike quote on the dedication page) but delivered without sentimentality; and the happy ending—a field mouse safe in its burrow; a hot bath for Marcus; a surprise reunion for Francie and her mom; and sunshine for all—feels absolutely right.
—The Horn Book (starred review)

Memorable, expressive characters (Graham has, for decades now, created characters rich in diversity, well before it was a Twitter hashtag) ; a story that makes you think and have all the many feels; and warm, detailed illustrations: this book has it all.
—Kirkus Reviews (blog)

Family love, human connection, the natural world, the gift of rain and the gift of grace to be found in quiet moments are all part of this simple, lovely book from an award-winning Australian author-illustrator.
