“When the crickets call and the wind is still and the water buffalo all are sleeping,” take a night journey through the streets of Hanoi with an artist who is searching for the city’s Red River. Wafted by dreams that soar like “a hundred white birds,” wander through a city that is stilled and softened by darkness; savor the syrupy fragrance of blossom-filled trees and the music of a cake seller’s song. Learn that “everything we love we carry within,” and hold that thought close while falling asleep. This bilingual story with its surreal and playful paintings is a beautiful addition to the Alphabetical World Series.
