Summary
Inspired by Rogério Coelho's family vacation on a Brazilian coastal village in winter, the characters of the old man and the young boy popped into his imagination and compelled him to create a story that took him almost seven years to complete. An old man and a seagull live on a deserted island. A young boy and his cat are lonely in a city. Between them, in a stoppered bottle, floats a piece of paper on which the man draws a flying boat and the boy imagines himself aboard. Are they separated only by distance, or also by time? Are they the same person-- the man's own memory of childhood? Are dreams of the future and memories of the past and a voyage of the imagination able to compose an ever-changing present? No distance is too far and no gulf of time is unbridgeable whenever your dreams carry you to wherever you wish to sail. This wordless, many-layered 80-page picture book invites all these interpretations and more
