    To see this and other wordless picture book reviews please visit wwwreadrantrockandrollcom Boat of Dreams by Rogério Coelho is an illustrated book with no words The book in my mind sent many messages and I wasn't truly sure what was happening even at the end The reader is left to draw their own conclusion but is it all just a dream?The illustrations were fantastic and my favorite was the communication between the man and his pet seagull I'm amazed at how powerful this book is and it left me uite emotional Children will love flipping the pages to see what comes next in the characters adventures but this book can be enjoyed by anyone The author's note on the back cover is touching 5

    An all ages wordless picturebook featuring an old man living alone on a deserted island and a boy in an apparently deserted house in the city Are they grandfather and grandchild? Or are they the same person? The man receives a note in a bottle then draws a fantastical flying machine which also look sin part like a sailboat The man sends his drawing back to sea and the boy receives it in a letter The boy sails the ship to meet the manWhat is the relationship between memory and dreams in the imagination over the span of a lifetime? What is the relationship between youth and old age? What place has isolation in the process of art making?The drawing is angular dark dramatically lit and somewhat surreal The sense of isolation conveyed feels haunting but open ended open to interpretation worth talking about in conversations between older and younger people who finally may find in common with each other than either might have imaginedThanks Nancy for the recommendation

    This wordless picture book would work eually well for both children and adults The art is stunning and I could look at each page for hours Since it's wordless there are many possible interpretations of the story There's an old man and a young boy Are they the same person in different time? Did one imagine create or dream up the other? Could the man be re discovering memories he had forgotten? What is the relationship between art and isolation and distance? Try it and see what story plays in your head

    An elderly man draws a picture of a magical flying ship in this wordless picture book from Brazilian artist Rogério Coelho launching it out to sea in the same bottle that brought him the paper Eventually his drawing finds its way to a little boy living in a city far away The little boy changes the drawing adding himself and his cat as passengers on the boat before taping it up over his bed In his dreams or are they dreams? he sails off to meet the old man and the two spend some time together before parting againHaving greatly enjoyed Coelho's artwork in such titles as Brynne Barnes' Books Do Not Have Wings and Lucy Branam's Roof Octopus I was curious to track down one of his own stories and see how I would like it I found Boat of Dreams just lovely and appreciated the many ways one could interpret the story Is the boy a younger version of the old man each one dreaming of the other? Is the boy the man's grandson separated either by distance or death but reunited in dream? Either could be the case and that is all to the good giving this an open ended dream like uality entirely appropriate to the story whatever it is Recommended to fans of Rogério Coelho's artwork and to readers who enjoy wordless picture books

    Story concept 5 starsArt 5 starsThe plot of this wordless graphic novel can be interpreted in various ways I believe the pet bird is helping the old man reconnect with a lost part of himself by encouraging him to draw again and the boy he embraces is a youthful representation of himself minus the burdens of self doubt Coelho's uote on the back of the book supports this theoryBut I think a child is likely to conclude that the boy is the old man's grandson who takes a magical voyage to visit him And that is okay too One of the benefits of this book is that it teaches readers to become comfortable with open ended narrativeThe art is stunning Sort of a cross between Lane Smith and Eliza Wheeler's Grudge Keeper maybe with a bit of Shaun Tan thrown in But that description doesn't begin to do it justice You should really see this book for yourself
