Hazelnut Days by Emmanuel Bourdier (Illustrations by Zaü)
Thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
Hazelnut Days depicts a difficult, underrepresented situation— being a child with a parent in prison. The text is honest and contemplative, and the characters are well developed.
The length of the text and the way the story is told make it more suited to older readers.
It is heart-warming that despite his father’s faults, this young boy is able to find things he admires in his dad. The illustrations pair well with the seriousness of the text.
