There was once a man who believed he owned everything and set out to survey what was his. "You are mine," Fausto said to the flower, the sheep, and the mountain, and they all bowed before him. Still, they were not enough for Fausto, so he conquered a boat and set out to sea—but there will be a reckoning for this fundamentally lonely figure. This "boldly conceived and gracefully executed" tale (Publishers Weekly) for readers and listeners 4 and up features Oliver Jeffers's ingenious combination of colored pencils and lithographic techniques, resulting in a minimalist masterpiece that is both beautiful and thought-provoking.
