Priscilla Twice

Priscilla Twice (1995)
Priscilla’s parents are getting a divorce, and Priscilla is not happy. At school, she draws a picture of herself without legs. When asked, “Where is the rest of you?” she answers, “At my father’s house.” Priscilla learns that there are all different kinds of families, and that what makes a family is “love.” This is the only book that I have written on request.

“The book, which features fine illustrations by the author, is a heart-tugging tale, but not sappy, and it could provide some children with the power to persevere.”

“Judith Caseley’s very good book…testifies nonetheless to the effects of time, humor, and unconditional love.” --Cynthia Zarin, The New York Times Book Review
