Synopsis

Synopsis

Renowned picture book author and illustrator Jeanette Winter brings us the enchanting story of a boy named Kali who lived thousands and thousands of years ago. Kali must learn to hunt, like the rest of the men in his tribe. But when Kali plucks the string on his bow, he forgets about shooting arrows, and makes music long into the night. Even the stars come close to listen.

This lovely story celebrates the uniqueness in all of us, the beauty of the natural world, and the power of music and art over violence. According to the New York Times, it "will resonate with all young children who seek to find their path in the world—and may perhaps be a bit wary of other people’s expectations."


From the Hardcover edition.

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, January 15, 2012:
“Minimalism brilliantly brings a distant time near.”

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, January 9, 2012:
“Winter’s cheerful, stripped-down figures and collage landscapes… make Kali’s path understandable and accessible even to young readers, and her vision of a life lived in perfect harmony with the universe—even the stars listen to Kali’s music—is full of hope.”
