This 2022 Mildred L. Batchelder Honor book is a testament to the power of the imagination and the saving power of storytelling.

While the rest of the world is sleeping, Vera is out running, flying to the lake at the top of the hill. She needs to meet her little brother again, and so, she turns to Syl. Syl, the magical creature who rises from the lake. Syl, who helps reframe grief and pain into healing and acceptance. Syl, who tells the story Vera most wants to hear: the story that brings Vera's brother back to life.

The Most Beautiful Story, both sad and hopeful, is a stunning testament to the saving power of stories. Together, Tj nn and Torseter have created a quiet, introspective book about longing, loss, and a love that transcends both.
