Issa Watanabe - Gecko Press
The migrants must leave the forest.
Borders are crossed, sacrifices made,
loved ones are lost. It takes such courage to reach the end.
At last the journey is over and the migrants arrive.
This is the new place.
Watanabe takes extraordinary care to show the individuality and humanity of each migrant--through the detailed patterns on their clothing, their care of each other as they set up camp, the symbol of the blue ibis showing the connection between past and future, life and death. A wordless book that will put many words in your head.
