This is a very unique book indeed. In stark black & white drawings, with varied panel layout and employing unique but resonant animal avatars, Jaeckel tells the story of her daughter Asa’s premature birth and confinement to a neonatal intensive care unit. As a neonatal care nurse I introduced to the text said, every health care provider working in this area would benefit from reading this wonderful book. And the rest of us as well!
