I have spent hours and hours trying to find this book on amazon :) Last summer it was 4 hours through the keyword search "love"... You can imagine... 3,000 entries. But this is it. By Gian Vanni. I had it once and gave it away (the perfect thing to do with books you love). It's the most beautiful, joyful story, brilliantly illustrated, inspiring to children as well as adults. This is a coming home in many ways (and when you read the book, you'll know why).
