Boat of dreams

1 volume (unpaged) : color illustrations ; 25 cm
"First published in Brazil by Editora Positivo Ltda., in 2015"--Colophon.
Inspired by Rogério Coelho's family vacation on a Brazilian coastal village in winter, the characters of the old man and the young boy popped into his imagination and compelled him to create a story that took him almost seven years to complete. An old man and a seagull live on a deserted island. A young boy and his cat are lonely in a city. Between them, in a stoppered bottle, floats a piece of paper on which the man draws a flying boat and the boy imagines himself aboard. Are they separated only by distance, or also by time? Are they the same person - the man's own memory of childhood? Are dreams of the future and memories of the past and a voyage of the imagination able to compose an ever-changing present? No distance is too far and no gulf of time is unbridgeable whenever your dreams carry you to wherever you wish to sail. This wordless, many-layered 80-page picture book invites all these interpretations and more. The intricately detailed illustrations reveal new wonders with each viewing. Neither children nor adults will ever tire of this wonderful testament to imagination, memory, and dreams.
