Illustration: Sand Castle by Arvata, drawing of a little girl building a sand castle on a beach
"SAND CASTLE"
Illustration on the back cover. The beach was one of Little Khara's
favourite places, and building sand castles and capturing little crabs
were some of her favourite things to do there.

Illustration: Bottle in Space by Arvata, depicts a message in a bottle against a stars and space background
"BOTTLE IN SPACE"
"Dear Umma. If only I could send a message in a bottle that might
reach you across the stars, to tell you how terribly much I miss you."

Illustration: Broken 2 by Arvata, depicts a sad and frightened little girl huddled in a dark corner
"BROKEN"
Much of the time, Little Khara felt like this; a crying,
frightened little girl, huddled up in a dark corner of a closet.

Illustration: Broken (original) by Arvata, depicts a sad and frightened little girl huddled in a dark corner
"BROKEN" (original)
This was the first version of Broken, and it was (possibly incorrectly)
concluded that the details in the darker parts would get muddled in
print, so another, simpler version was commissioned.

Illustration: Hibiscus by Arvata, depicts a Hibiscus flower in the center of a South-Korean flag
"HIBISCUS"
The Hibiscus is the national flower of South Korea, so it seemed quite
fitting to place it on the flag.

Illustration: Sleepytime, drawing of a girl sleeping with a toy bunny in her arms
"SLEEPYTIME"
Little Khara sleeping with Sunniva, her favourite
stuffed bunny, in her arms. Even today, Sunniva carries
the imprint of Khara's thumb on her stomach.
