In a wordless picture universe that somehow reminds of Hans Arnold’s and Maurice Sendak’s, we get to meet a boy who with the help of a magical seed, a message in a bottle and a little luck, makes a new friend. Thanks to the seed that the boy sends to the girl, stuck on the island of loneliness, she is able to grow a plant that stretches above the sea. And he can climb up on their plant and meet her. A black and white book full of details and fine lines, printed on thick beautiful paper. A book that inspires the reader to tell a new story every night.
