About this deal

Here Kenji combines two visions of the heavens ~ that of Buddhist cosmology and that of the science of astronomy.

Japanese fairy tales – enchanting, enigmatic stories of animals, human beings and the great natural world . Giovanni speaks to Campanella's father, who says his son has been lost in the water too long to be saved. Kenji’s combination of science and religion is apparent not only in the ultimate message of the story, but in its construction as well. The first thing the reader notices about the story is that the main characters of this Japanese novel have Italian names. By reading his stories, we are enriched with a sense of joy and inspired to improve ourselves as individuals and as a collective.Japan has a short mention of the work as illustrated in the reaction of the judge Pierrot, the world class clown, after eating the bread of Shadow who promised it would send him across the galaxy to see his mother. The snooty hawk, for instance, looks down on the ugly but peaceable nighthawk (‘quite harmless to other birds’), who half-shares his macho name despite a deplorable lack of raptor credentials.

The two boys witness amazing sights and meet various people, including scholars excavating a fossil from sands of white crystal, a man who catches herons and sells them as sweets, and passengers of a ship that sank after hitting an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean. Precioso cuento cuya moraleja enseña que pocas cosas en la vida se consiguen sin esfuerzo e ilusión y que no debe perderse la esperanza cuando aquello que intentamos hacer no sale bien a la primera. Gracias como siempre por la invitación y por elegir libros interesantes para descubrir y debatir en grupo. The bird catcher breaks off a goose’s leg “ as if it were made of chocolate” (71) and when the boys eat it Giovanni notes that it tastes like cake.

Condemned to separation, they are permitted to meet once a year on the seventh day of the seventh month when magpies spread their wings to form a bridge across the river of heaven.
