A large, beautiful blue stone is discovered in a forest. It is cut in half, and one half stays in the forest while the other starts on a long and mystical journey through many places, many owners, and many transformations. It begins as a statue of an elephant, admired by museum-goers, and then becomes a carved bird residing in an elderly woman's garden. It becomes a moon, a cat, a necklace, and more. Throughout it all, the stone longs to return home, and finally it crumbles to dust and flies with the wind back to rest with its other half in the forest.
Breathtaking illustrations and a haunting story by world-renowned illustrator Jimmy Liao take readers on a magical journey around the world. Adults will marvel at the life stories revealed in this book, and children will delight at seeing the different manifestations of the blue stone. Just as with Sound of Colors, this book works on many different levels, and ultimately is a powerful story of different life paths and possibilities, a longing for home and love.
