In this book, Brooks offers an illustrated narrative that tells the child reader about the difference between being alone and being lonely, describing loneliness as a colorless, soundless state that makes one feel completely disconnected from the world.

Aloneness, on the other hand, is described as being “delicious,” for one recognizes him/herself in the quietness of the space (8). Aloneness is further described as being with “you […] and pulse and nature keep you company. The little minutes are there, building into hours: the minutes that are the bricks of days and years”
