From Cockburn Libraries (Australia): ""This is the last time I'll fish in this river. This is the last time I'll run through these trees. This is the last time I'll dream by this fire... Goodbye, old house. Goodbye." A heartwarming story of letting go and starting anew, of moving from the country to the city, with a unique illustration style that allows room and space for the reader's imagination."

Took someone to the library to show them how to find books that they can read while learning English. This was exactly what I was looking for.
Sadly, the book was not that good. I generally do not like short stories though, so it is a bit hard to judge. The only really good part is the lessons it is trying to teach: if you cannot sleep, try again later; do things during the day when they are open. Very insightful.

Wonderful, picturesque book on the trauma of war, the fragility of life, and the love of the written world. It is a battle cry for preserving your heritage and a reminder that bombs can not destroy the human.
