The Brave Little Soul, written by John Alessi, illustrated by Annette Alessi


The Brave Little Soul was written by my husband, John, in 2005 when our dear friend’s son, Liam James Kane passed from Neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer. Even though it took 10 years to be able to manifest the illustrations on my behalf, the book is finally ready to help many to make peace with the loss of their child. Read more about Liam whom this book is dedicated to on the website of The Brave Little Soul. Purchase a copy of The Brave Little Soul on Amazon. All profits will be donated to organizations who help children with cancer and their families.
