Description
"For days after reading Brenna Thummler's Sheets I have been wandering my neighborhood, haunted, enchanted, and in need offreshly pressed clothing." -LemonySnicket Marjorie Glatt feels like a ghost. Apractical thirteen-year-old in charge of the family laundry business, her dailyroutine features unforgiving customers, unbearable P.E. classes, and thefastidious Mr. Saubertuck who is committed to destroying everything she's workedfor. Wendell is a ghost. A boy who lost hislife much too young, his daily routine features ineffective death therapy, asheet-dependent identity, and a dangerous need to seek purpose in the forbiddenhuman world. When their worlds collide,Marjorie is confronted by unexplainable disasters as Wendell transforms Glatt'sLaundry into his midnight playground, appearing as a mere sheet during the day.While Wendell attempts to create a new afterlife for himself, he unknowinglysabotages the life that Marjorie is struggling tomaintain. Sheets illustrates thedetermination of a young girl to fight, even when all parts of her world seem tobe conspiring against her. It proves that second chances are possible whetherlife feels over or life is over. But above all, it is a story of the forgivenessand unlikely friendship that can only transpire inside a hauntedlaundromat. "Brenna Thummler's first originalgraphic novel is a reason to celebrate. She announced herself as an artist toreckon with when she illustrated Mariah Marsden's adaptation of Anne of GreenGables. Now she's illustrated her own story of ghosts and family, loneliness andlaundromats. I'm sure you'll be captivated, and as eager as I am to see whatcomes next!"-Brian Selznick, author of Wonderstruck and The Inventionof Hugo Cabret "Sweet, sad, funny, warm, and beautiful. If I can beforgiven for using this word, this is one that will haunt me, in the bestway."-Dana Simpson
