Draw Me A Star BSE055

US$16.95+

A young boy is told to draw a star. The star then requests that the boy draw it a sun; the sun asks for a lovely tree, and throughout his life the boy/man/artist continues to create images that fill the world with beauty. The moon bids the now-elderly artist to draw another star, and as the story ends, the artist travels across the night sky hand-in-hand with the star. This book will appeal to readers of all ages; its stunning illustrations, spare text, and simple story line make it a good choice for story hour; but older children will also find it uplifting and meaningful.  An inspired book in every sense of the word. For kindergarten to grade 4 children.

《画一个星星给我》书中借由隐形的第三人,向画家要求一个星星,紧接着星星又要求画一个温暖的太阳;太阳要求画一棵可爱的树……如此描绘出一个个多彩多姿的生命,诉说宇宙生生不息的创造力与生命的循环。
在看似极为简单的文图表现里,蕴涵着细腻的设计与深意。书里的画家彩笔一挥,像变魔术一样,创造出一个又一个“很棒的”、“温暖的”、“可爱的”、“漂亮的”生命、东西和自然景物。这么多不同的形容词,表达了画家描述与看待世界的方式。创造的过程有条有理,各个独立个体之间有生命互相依存的需求,也有和谐共处的关系。情节一步步推展,到了画面最丰富的无字跨页图画时,世界整体看来多么生气蓬勃,充满喜悦,让人不能不赞叹生命真是奇妙的恩典。
而创造的过程也伴随着人生的周期,画家从小孩变成青年、再变成中年人,最后变成老人随着星星飞向空中,显示他对艺术创作持续不懈的热情和努力,也让人看到艺术的生命如何自由飞翔与照亮黑夜。艺术、世界与人生三者之间,就创造的意义而言原来互有关联。
