Maybe Tomorrow?

Author: Charlotte Agell; Illustrator: Ana Ramírez González

  • AGES 4 - 8 
  • Genre Fiction
Elba has a black block. She's been dragging it around for a long time.

Norris dances everywhere he goes, even uphill. He is always surrounded by a happy cloud of butterflies.

Can Norris and his butterflies help ease Elba's sadness and convince her to join them on a trip to the ocean?

This tender exploration of loss illuminates how kindness, empathy, and friendship can lift our spirits and see us through many tomorrows. It will resonate with anyone who has experienced hardship or grief, from the death of a loved one or a pet, to a friend moving away, or the transition to a new home or family situation.



“This is a story of deep empathy and elegance, sure to resonate with children struggling with sorrow. And those who aren’t can tuck the story away in their minds for a day they may need it.”

- Kirkus Reviews



- Publishers Weekly


“Acknowledge[s] Elba’s sadness while still offering hope that the world can be beautiful place…an excellent purchase.”

- School Library Journal


“A sweetly simple but perceptive and hopeful story.”

- The Washington Post


“I sit and I wait quietly...for years before the right book with the right take on a message comes my way. This year, Maybe Tomorrow? by Agell and González is that book.”
