Overview

An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place or circumstances. The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break." - early Chinese belief

This art book of beautiful images by celebrated artist Soizick Meister is the second book about "Mr. M", a mysterious and imaginative dreamer.
Arcane, evocative words and rich language are used to tell this new tale of Mr. M who has recently been liberated from heavy memories and uncertainties, (struggles he overcame in "Mr. M and the Exploring Dreamer"). But now he realizes he is still missing something: compainonship. Mr. M, remembering someone who he loved long ago and lingers still in his mind, he sends her messages. Using the early Chinese idiom of "the red thread" - the connection linking humanity to one another, as inspiration, Mr. M's messages take the form of mystical red threads. However, messages never take the place of meeting face-to-face, and ultimately, Mr. M must embark to reconnect with her in person. "Mr. M and the Red Thread" will resonate with all those whose hearts have searched and struggled to find true love.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Have you looked at this book? It is just stunning – visually delicious! I’m keeping it on my coffee table. It calms me." - Susan Richmond, Northwest Book Lovers (for Mr. M the Exploring Dreamer)

The author and illustrator weave together rich, complex and enigmatic story of Mr. M through the illustrations and the one accompanying sentence per page. The illustrations are amazing and promote curiosity and a feeling of searching. This book reminds me of Van Allsberg's work in that it is cryptic and mysterious. Or the Stonecutter by Jon J. Muth and John Kuramoto with each illustration accompanied by a single sentence together telling a rich story. It offers the opportunity for contemplation and imagination. - Michiko, Goodreads

"Beautiful illustrations accompany the brief text." - Jeanette Marks, Teen Librarian, Michigan
