Protecting Marie

Written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes

“Fanny sensed that from the moment she was born she was meant to have a dog. It was as though some unique and independent organ deep inside her, like a tiny heart, couldn’t thrive properly without one.”

This is Fanny’s story—a story about wanting and getting and realizing that nothing is simple or easy.


“Moving and heartwarming, Henkes has penned another sure future award winner!”— VOYA
