(An In-Case-You-Missed-It-Review): Big PB Planet applause for The Secret-Keeper by Kate Coombs, illustrated by Heather M. Solomon (Atheneum Books for Young Readers, Simon & Schuster, 2006). Kalli was the village secret-keeper, collecting the burdens of the people of Maldinga and tucking their token-forms into the walls of her cottage, leaving each villager feeling lighter of heart. But when a long winter keeps the villagers away, the weight of all those sad old secrets troubles Kalli, causing her to fall ill. When the snows thaw, and the villagers return, how can they save their secret-keeper? Gorgeously illustrated with Solomon’s watercolor paintings, it’s a beautiful fantasy that will leave you wondering: what shape would your secrets take?
