Rosalie Lightning feature for The National

We've written a feature for The National newspaper about the graphic memoir Rosalie Lightning by Tom Hart. It's an incredibly powerful book about the loss of a child: Rosalie Lightning died just before turning two from unexplained causes. Rosalie loved one of our own books, Louis - Night Salad, and Tom integrates this and her other loves, including My Neighbor Totoro, into his graphic novel. We felt very moved, and wanted to respond in some way. Our best wishes to Tom Hart and Leela Corman, who now have a daughter, Molly Rose.
Here's a link to the online version of the article: http://www.thenational.scot/culture/drawing-on-grief-how-comic-creator-tom-hart-paid-powerful-tribute-to-his-late-daughter-rosalie-lightning.18143
