by Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá, 66 pages

Unblemished childhood love conquers all in this brief, magical tale of first love never really lost because its participants refuse to let it go.  Just because you have to grow up doesn't mean you have to leave who and what you loved as a child behind.

The art here is cute and eclectic and a nice fit for the magic literally in the air around these youngsters, even after they've grown up.  Whatever their ages, their hearts are forever young and open to the wonders of imagination and writing their own stories.  My only complaint is that the story is so short, it feels a little lost all by itself and like it belongs in a collection of other magical, imagination-fueled tales by this creative pair of brothers--which I would totally read.  :)
