The story took place in the aquarium, a place like the sea. Many creatures were displayed here and their world was built for people to view. People and fishes look at each other through the glass from two unrelated worlds. One thing happened and it echoed a similar situation for these two worlds. That is, a little boy got lost in the aquarium and his panic and helplessness were shown in front of another world, and the one who understood him best at the moment was trapped and swimming in the other side.

Written and illustrated by Lin Boting, winner of the “Feng Zikai Children’s Picture Book Award” and author of “Go to the Zoo Together”, is the latest masterpiece caring for animals──
The work directly presents the concern for the situation of marine animals from the perspective of children, and the theme echoes the reflection on the topic of “captive marine animals” in recent years; this book provides parent-child/teacher-student discussions in the form of a picture book that is very suitable for co-reading and as the starting point of the issue.

Content Features

◆Ecological Education Green Picture Book: Pay attention to the animals in captivity in the Ocean Park/Marine Biological Museum

◆The perspective of empathy: the feelings of the little boy after he separated from his parents in the museum, to bring out the various animals he saw in his eyes, as well as the situation in which the animals left their homes in the sea and were kept in captivity by humans── I hope to open up discussion and dialogue on related topics among young readers/parents/teachers and students.

◆Unique visual performance: the delicate drawing in the style of engraving creates a blue water world with strong contrast between light and shadow and light and dark.

Publisher’s Weekly: 
Star Review 
‘Intricate, realistic illustrations of wildlife, made fanciful by breathtaking, multihued washes of color against a black sky, distinguish this observational nature picture book. Spare prose follows a red fox peering from a den, perceiving other animals of the forest—a buck, a great horned owl, squirrels, mice, a moose, and more—and making note of their actions while journeying to the stream for a drink. “His thirst quenched, the fox heads home,” seeing more animals along the way (“rabbits hiding in a hollow log,” “chattering crows”) before rejoining his family: a vixen and kits. The quiet, documentary tone echoes the stillness denoted on the first page (“All is silent”), setting the stage for Lo’s vibrant watercolors.  The art will undoubtedly merit repeat perusals, especially for young nature enthusiasts. Ages 4–9.’

ABOUT THE TITLE

This is a beautifully illustrated book that introduces children to the wonder of nature in winter: A Fox Peeks Out of His Den at a White Forest/ All is Silent/A Buck Stands Camouflaged/A great horned owl sits on a nearby branch/ The fox climbs out of this den/ He passes squirrels eating/ He passes mice foraging/ The fox reaches a stream where he takes a cold drink/ A family of mallard ducks swims by/ Across the stream, river otters rest on a rock/ Suddenly, the earth trembles. Towering over the fox, a moose takes a cold drink/ His thirst quenched, the fox heads home/ He passes rabbits hiding in a hollow tree/ Chattering crows greet the fox outside his den/ After the snowfall.

內容簡介
兄弟倆來到河邊才發現霧太大了,一片朦朧。
他們把草叢錯認成水鳥,枯樹錯認成小鹿,土塊錯認成了鱷魚……
這是一個視錯覺遊戲,充滿了未知和驚險。
他們從驚險中回過神來,還以為是自己的力量化解了這場驚險……
也許將來,他們會驕傲地反復說起這次的非凡經歷,但事情的全部,他們也許永遠不會知道了……

真相真的如我們親眼所見的那樣嗎?

When the brothers came to the river, they found that the fog was too heavy and it was hazy.
They mistook the grass for the water bird, the dead tree for the fawn, and the dirt for the crocodile…
This is an optical illusion game, full of unknown and thrilling.
They recovered from the thrill and thought it was their own power to resolve the thrill…
Perhaps in the future, they will proudly repeat this extraordinary experience, but they may never know the whole thing…
Is the truth really as we have seen with our own eyes?

What you see is not necessarily true.

內容簡介
兄弟倆早早搭好了帳篷,等待天黑之後去露營。
夜晚的世界和白天的世界會有所不同嗎?
弟弟的期待似乎又要落空了:沒有奇蹟,沒有新奇事物,甚至和平常沒有什麼不同……
但最後奇蹟發生了。

奇蹟發生前,他們在討論著奇蹟會不會發生;
奇蹟發生時,他們在討論中暗自驚訝,又暗自擔心;
奇蹟結束後,他們從夢中醒來……

平凡生活裡,曾有過多少大大小小的冒險,我們自己卻渾然不覺?

你走到哪兒,宇宙就跟到哪兒

繪本作品《樹王》《小鳥和雕像》“散步三部曲”。

The brothers set up a tent early, and waited for it to go camping after dark.
Will the world at night be different from the ones at day?
The younger brother’s expectations seem to be frustrated again: there are no miracles, no novelties, and even no difference from usual…
But in the end a miracle happened.

Before the miracle happened, they were discussing whether the miracle would happen;
When the miracle happened, they were surprised and worried secretly in the discussion;
After the miracle was over, they woke up from their dreams…

In ordinary life, how many big and small adventures have we ever had, but we are completely unaware of it?

Wherever you go, the universe will follow.
“Camping”: an “accidental” grand adventure

內容簡介
兄弟倆像尋常一樣出門散步,越走越遠。
他們覺得生活的這個地方太普通、太無趣了,總渴望一些新奇的事物。
於是弟弟便忍不住猜想:地下有××嗎?
有××嗎……但每一次都被知識面更廣、閱歷更豐富的哥哥否定了。
他們對地下一無所知,最後得出了一個遺憾的結論:要是生活在別的地方該多好啊!
哪怕比這裡特別一點點……那些我們看不見的東,真的不存在嗎?

The real world around you is just as marvelous as your imagination.
The older brother takes the younger to a walk. Along the way, the younger cannot stop asking his older brother if their place has these things which are seemingly cool and interesting. Though the older brother keeps denying, there is, actually, a treasure buried deep down under their world. Great things are right around you, and you just need to find them.

當它長到普通樹的大小時,大家都以為它只是一棵普通的樹。
後來它越長越大,人們才發現原來這兒有一棵這麼大的樹。
人們在樹下度過愉快的時光。
樹越長越大,被稱作樹王,越來越多的遊客來這裡參觀樹王,小鎮變成了城市。
樹王是人們的驕傲。然而樹還在長大,強壯的樹根破壞了人類的房屋,樹蔭遮天蔽日。
人們開始擔憂起來,他們不知道樹還會長多大……

這是一本以樹為主角的書,一本人類與自然角力的書,一本反思工業化和城市化的樹。
