    I accidentally ran into this book on the goodreads homepage and it brought the tears of joy to my eyes This was probably my favorite picture book when I was a child Since it s in English, my mother had to read it to me because I didn t learn English until I was 10 It had the most beautiful pictures ever, and the story was so beautiful.During the recent house cleaning I re discovered this book again, and I read it on my own, probably for the first time in my whole life I have p
