This is another great picture book for kids. The illustrations tell most of the story. But the few words that are part of the picture book are etched as if on the hearts of the monk and white cat.
The story is written in the form of a poem. The monk leads a simple life–he studies his books late into the evening, searching for meaning.
His cat Pangur leads a simple life too chasing his prey in the dark. As night turns to dawn, can each find what he seeks.
This story is unique in that I never quite read a picture book like it. The themes are new as well. It was a great find, again in the inner recesses of my splendid local library!
