Whimsy's heavy things are weighing her down. She tries to sweep them under the rug, but she trips over them. She tries to put them in a tree, but they fall on her. She even tries to sail them out to sea, but they always come back. Eventually Whimsy decides to deal with the heavy things one at a time... and a surprising thing happens. With exquisite illustrations and delightfully simple text, Whimsy's Heavy Things is a sweet story about changing the things that weigh us down into the things that lift us up.

She is a "stop and smell the roses" kind of gal who loves to create. Visit her online at juliekraulis.com. The author lives in Toronto, Canada.

Praise for Whimsy's Heavy Things…

"[Whimsy's] ... solutions are ingenious, and the ending surprises with a mature little twist that is reassuring as well as realistic. Every page is sweetly rendered by author and illustrator Julie Kraulis's oil and graphite artwork, which evokes a softer, gentler version of Tim Burton's style.”
