This book is based on a classic Chinese folk story, one that defines what an ideal friendship looks like and the importance of it. Art is a way of expressing oneself and it's a blessing that someone acknowledges and appreciates it. Using illustrations mimicking Chinese ink wash paintings, this book depicts the splendid nature (mountains, rivers, plants etc.) and ancient China (gardens, boats, traditional instruments and clothing etc.). It has an abrupt ending without any resolution, but it perfectly reflects the significance of a friend who can truly understand what your music wants to convey.
