The Way Home in the Night よるのかえりみち

Product Description


A quiet night city. A rabbit boy who is exhausted after playing all day is hugged by his mother and goes home. From the windows of the lit houses, you can get a glimpse of the people who spend the night in their own way. Some people are talking on phones, some are cooking, some are alone and some are attending a lively party. Soon the boy arrives home and once in bed he ponders the people he saw earlier. I wonder what everyone is doing now, maybe it's about time that they're getting ready to go to bed ... Eventually, the boy's imagination and reality mix in a dream, and the day ends in a satisfying mood. An imaginative element is included in each picture, giving depth to a simple story, and a picture book that is ideal for reading aloud at night.
