Family, stray dog
Inspired by a true story,
Kang-yi tells the unforgettable encounter between Suzy Lee and her children with a black dog in search of a home. The dog, named River, was saved and welcomed with love.
He became a companion in games and adventures, which come to life on paper through simple and immediate lines. The white of the pages leaves room for the reader’s imagination. The reader is immersed in River’s story and his way of seeing the world: we dive with him in the snow or in a pile of leaves, we become part of the family, and through his point of view we experience happiness and friendship, as well as expectation and nostalgia. Memories of River have been put together for this picture book, using sketches from real life.
Suzy Lee was born in Seoul in 1974. She studied painting and book art in Korea and England.She took a draft of her Master’s project, Alice in Wonderland, to the Bologna Children’s Book Fair and it was published by Edizioni Corraini in 2002.n Her next book Mirror became the first of three books: Mirror (2003), Wave (2008) and Shadow (2010) known as the Border Trilogy.
