Breathtaking watercolors in earthy colors combine with the story of Isaac, who is told in a dream to find his treasure. He searches the world on a long journey, only to be surprised when he returns home. The greatest "treasures" are often those we forget we have (family, friends, love) and what could be a better reminder than this touching, beautiful story?
I especially like the first page that only has words and no pictures, but lets you imagine what Isaac looks like. This book is a treasure for the whole family.
