I Love You Always

Written by Astrid Desbordes | Illustrated by Pauline Martin | Translated by Noelia Hobeika | Little Gestalten | April 26, 2016

With the simple question “Mom, will you love me my whole life?”, Max sparks the most honest and relatable of answers from his mother, who goes on to tell her son about all the moments in life through which she loves him.

“I love you when you behave and when your good behavior doesn’t last” and “I love you when you look your best and when you’re feeling your worst” are some of the scenes author Astrid Desbordes and illustrator Pauline Martin succeed in depicting with heartwarming candidness. A refreshing take on a timeless subject, I Love You Always beautifully recounts a mother’s unconditional love for her child.

"Martin’s delicate cartooning brings humor to life’s ups and downs ... helping deliver Desbordes’s reassuring message with a light touch." --Publisher's Weekly
