Written by Carol Ann Duffy and illustrated by Nicoletta Ceccoli, ‘The Tear Thief’ was published a few years ago.
Each night, between supper and bedtime, the Tear Thief carries her waterproof, silvery sack – and steals the tears of every child who cries. But what does she do with all of those tears ? And why is she invisible ? It’s a poignant and beautifully illustrated story. A great story to sit down and read together.
