The Heart and the Bottle - Oliver Jeffers
This is a smack-you-over-the-head-with-a-message type of book that will leave many kids feeling very puzzled and potentially annoy their parents as well. It might be a good pick for a child who has experienced loss of some kind. And yet it deals with the topic in such an indirect way that I'm really not convinced it would be that effective. Still the illustrations are inventive and appealing.
