On the final spread, the old man walks off to the right, and it looks very similar to that first spread. A man’s leg, clad in dark pants, is at both times all we see of the gift-giver’s body, as the story comes full circle in more ways than one. It’s a charmer, this one. High-five.

Synopsis

Kindness needs no words in this soaring tale that is ideal for gift-giving.

When a little boy’s prized toy airplane lands on a rooftop, he makes several rescue attempts before devising an unexpected solution.

Rendered in sepia tones and exemplifying a touching message, this wordless story is gracefully open to interpretation, containing a seed of wisdom for every reader.
