Product description

Review

"A poignant story about love, loss, family and friendships that will tug at your heartstrings long after you close the book." —Darlene Foster, author, Amanda Travels series


"This is a book about fear, joy, frustration, acceptance, forgiveness, anger and, above all, love. This is a story of emotional truth that is sure to captivate readers of all ages." —Ashley Spires, best-selling author and illustrator, The Most Magnificent Thing


"Avoiding sentimentality or easy answers, From Ant to Eagle explores the complex emotions of a family on the verge of “the cancer crumble” with stark honesty and warm compassion." —Beth Cooley, author, Ostrich Eye and Shelter


"From Ant to Eagle is a wonderful conflation of heart, intelligence, and seriously skillful storytelling." —Andrew Norriss, author, Friends for Life and Jessica's Ghost


"From Ant to Eagle is absolutely terrific. I was very moved and many elements of the story—the cancer crumble, beliefs about life and death, the nature of palliative care, the role of nurses, physicians, and the patients themselves in the oncology wheel—were not only riveting but informative.” —Paulette Bourgeois, author


"From Ant to Eagle is a masterpiece. August (Wonder) and Melody (Out of My Mind) will now be in good company with Cal.” —Connie Halpern, Mrs. Figs' Bookworm, California


"Lyttle's voice for Cal is appealingly direct and articulate . . . and his account of his struggle to cope will appeal to readers. Tender, direct, and honest." —Vicki Smith, Kirkus Reviews


"Lyttle’s debut is an uncommonly honest examination of mortality and the ways in which growing up complicates sibling relationships . . . . Lyttle delicately tackles the subjects of grief and death, trusting middle-grade readers with a sophisticated story that includes notes of humor. A moving and ultimately hopeful book." —Booklist


"An honest portrayal of love, loss, and friendship in the face of a life-changing journey." —Sarah Polace, School Library Journal
