Summary
  • "In this spare, poetic picture book based on author Muon Van's family history and told through a series of wishes, a family packs up everything they own and embarks on a perilous oceanic voyage toward a better life"--
  • If you had to leave everything behind and travel by boat across rocky waters to find safe harbor...what would you wish for? In the middle of the night, a family quickly packs up what they can carry and leaves their entire world, traveling to a new and unknown place. The voyage is perilous, but the heart's wishes prevail in this emotional journey of resilience, belonging, and hope.--Book jacket
