Not recommended. Very esoteric and hard to follow. After Josie's soldier husband is killed in battle, the animals who inhabit her magical world help her cope with grief by locking away her sorrows.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0823418618, Hardcover)

"Like a great white ship, the swan sailed into the little harbor. On her back was a baby." A baby! The animals of the town are aghast. But Sanders, the old pig, simply picks up the little girl and takes her home. He names her Josie. There is much warmth and wisdom in this modern fairy tale of a girl raised by kindly animals. Translated from the Dutch, this book tackles bereavement with great sensitivity and originality. Fans of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince will appreciate this tale’s quirky charm and keen insight.
