Kids Can Press

Earth to Audrey by Susan Hughes (Kids Can Press) shows how easy it is to assume we know others. A boy named Ray befriends an unusual girl named Audrey. He decides that the only explanation for her quirky behaviour and mannerisms is that she must be an alien. Audrey eventually teaches Ray to view his world through new eyes. Stéphane Poulin’s artwork captures and conveys the close friendship that develops between Audrey and Ray over the course of a magical summer. mRb
