Sometimes the most basic of objects can come to represent so much more. In the simple yet beautiful A Glass, acclaimed children's author and illustrator Etienne Delessert tells the story of his stepmother . and of the glass that came to symbolize her. Illustrated in the unmistakable style that has earned Delessert decades of renown, this is a story of wild mushrooms, garden snails, imaginary characters, and—above all—love. Readers will learn of one seemingly unbreakable glass and of the shatterproof love between a parent and a child.
