Amy and Louis live next door to each other, and their lives are closely intertwined. Theirs is a life rich in imagination-they see dragons in the clouds and make castles out of cardboard. But when Amy's family moves to another country, the children are separated and the colour drains out of their lives. Until Louis discovers how to rebuild their special bond. This is a loving, moving, goose-bumping tale of deep friendship. The spare, evocative text-enhanced by illustrations of rare sensitivity and insight-strike directly at the heart.

Book Review: Amy and Louis by Libby Gleeson - Reviewed by SophiaK (02 Sep 2010)
Nextdoor neighbours Amy and Louis live in that gorgeous childhood world of dressing up, playdough, swings and sandpits, and call to each other "Coo-ee Lou-ee, coo-ee, Am-ee" whenever they need a friend. Then Amy moves to a rainy city on the other side of the world and for a while everything becomes grey in both their worlds. In the end the children find that physical separation doesn't have to stop you thinking of, talking to and dreaming of the people that you love. This book is simply written, beautifully illustrated and can also give you a way to talk to your children about one of the not-so-simple sadnesses that is a part of life. If, like me, you have family and friends on the other side of the world, this book is one you should buy.
