Geared for Division 2 and 3, this picture book remembers the loving relationship the author had with his father and the Knock, Knock game that they played. When he was a very young boy, the writer relates his own personal and emotional story of coping with the loss of his father who is no longer there to answer his questions, and help him navigate the pitfalls from childhood to adolescence. Through letters his father encourages him to become the best and to make his place in a bright and brilliant future . Bryan Collier created the full-page illustrations favouring dark and brooding colours. Collier sums up the story with these words; – I’m moved by the loss this child experiences without his father present to help answer life’s questions about how to trust and love and become whole. These are universal themes that are not bound by race, socioeconomic status or gender. This book is not just about loss, but also about hope, making healthy choices and not letting our past define our future. And, from the author: to offer hope that every fatherless child can still create the most beautiful life possible .
