Alena and the Favorite Thing

Alena and the Favorite Thing

Inspired by the birth of his child earlier this year, Eric Anderson celebrates the unique bond between dads and their daughters, that timeless relationship that Robert Browning described as the “special providence of fatherhood.” ALENA & THE FAVORITE THING is the story of a bored little girl with a big imagination. When Alena's Poppa loses his favorite thing and can't even seem to remember what it is, he enlists his daughter in a quest to help him find it. From a basement filled with monsters, through a grand Victorian ballet hall, to a big top's center ring, and all the way to the moon, Alena and her trusty teddy bear search everywhere in a quest to find her Poppa's favorite thing! A heartwarming tale for parents and children of all ages. Eric Anderson is a well-known writer/director in the Chicago area. His collaborator Jakub Kuzma, who lives in Poland, has illustrated over 150 children's books, working with major European publishers. Their artistic, humorous and contemporary interpretations will capture the attention of even the youngest “reader.” Please visit www.alenabooks.com for more on this charming new entry into the children's book canon.

It's the scene where Joaquin Pheonix's character is watching tv in the closet. I won't ruin it for you, just watch it.
