About this item

Like Shaun Tans The Arrival and Raymond Briggss The Snowman, this gorgeous and imaginative 100-page graphic picture book is utterly transporting and original.   A little girl—lost and alone—follows a mysterious stag deep into the woods, and, like Alice down the rabbit hole, she finds herself in a strange and wondrous world. But . . . home and family are very far away. How will she get back there?   In this magnificently illustrated—and wordless—masterpiece, debut artist Guojing brilliantly captures the rich and deeply-felt emotional life of a child, filled with loneliness and longing as well as love and joy.Majestic.... Rare is the book containing great emotional depth that truly resonates across a span of ages this is one such. —Kirkus Reviews, StarredFrom the Hardcover edition.
