Shadow Chasers Elly MacKay

Shadow Chasers
Elly MacKay

As a summer evening descends, three young children spot a shadow outside. When they chase it through their backyard, more shadows begin to appear, and the children find that they are always just out of reach. But when it is time to go to bed, the children dream of a new day filled with new possibilities.

Elly MacKay’s magical picture book showcases her luminous paper-cut illustrations and simple lyrical text. The idea that hopes and dreams keep us moving forward, and that one must be bold in order to go after them, are brought to life in this timeless story.
