Carry Me by Dan Berry

I wasn't sure what to expect when I opened Carry Me. I didn't realize it was completely devoid of words. I was reminded of Josh Simmons House which shook me inside. That happens a lot with these script-less books. However, the end result and feelings left behind with Carry Me, are a completely different experience than a story like House.

Carry Me is a bookfor the young and old. It leaves with the same bitter-sweet sentiment as Robert Munsch's Love You Forever. I started tearing up as I read the closing words, well, the only words in the story. A touching sentiment told with a minimalist art style, Carry Me is a story for everyone.
