What's The Dreamer About

Publisher Summary

Once, there was a pig who admired birds. But he could never join them. Or could he? Thus begins the journey of a pig with big dreams, and the perseverance to make them come true. He develops flight plans, builds experimental contraptions, and has far-flung adventures, but at the end of the day, his favorite thing to do is still to sit and watch for those he loves best: the birds. Il Sung Na creates a world at once whimsical and aspirational, where anything is possible and, yes, even pigs can learn to fly.

Awww. It’s an adorable story told in an adorable way. I love the soft pastel illustrations - each picture really adds to the story and pushes the plot along. I love the minimalist text as well - really just a few words per page. It’s a book to enjoy with your ears, eyes, and heart.
