Overview

When Liam's sister dies, his world turns grey. He spends hours watching clouds crossing the wintry skies, hoping that Cassie is out there somewhere.

On the night before Liam's birthday, Cassie sails the Sky Dreamer to their home and drops anchor in a ghost gum tree. She invites Liam to climb aboard, and together the children go sailing through the Milky Way. But there are lessons Liam must learn before the Sky Dreamer returns home.

The Sky Dreamer is an achingly beautiful and ultimately comforting picture book about a young child learning to take control of his life after the death of a loved one.

This title was supported by the Australia Council in its 2010 Grants round.
Après la mort de sa sœur, le monde de Liam devient gris. Il passe des heures à regarder les nuages dans le ciel hivernal, espérant que Cassie soit là-haut quelque part.

La nuit précédant son anniversaire, Cassie revient à la maison dans un merveilleux bateau volant et jette l’ancre dans l’eucalyptus argenté de leur jardin. Elle invite Liam à grimper à bord et les deux enfants s’en vont naviguer à travers la voie lactée. Mais il y a bien des leçons que Liam devra apprendre avant qu’ils ne retrouvent le chemin du retour.

’Le bateau de rêves’ est un magnifique livre d’images, racontant de manière enchanteresse et réconfortante l’histoire douloureuse d’un jeune enfant apprenant à reprendre le contrôle de sa vie après la mort d’un être aimé.

Editorial Reviews

Margaret Warner
This beautiful book very gently explores the process of loss and healing and would be very comforting to share with a child going through this process.

Ce beau livre explore très doucement le processus de la perte et de la guérison et le soulagerait très pour partager avec un enfant passant par ce processus.
