(Rock Spring Collection of Japanese Literature) Translated and adapted from the Japanese by Joseph Sigrist and D.M. Stroud; Illustrated by Ryu Okazaki; Clean, tight, unmarked; bump with small tear to upper center back edge; otherwise minimal wear; Teased by his friends and alone on a hilltop, a young boy is suddenly swept aboard a magical train bound for the Milky Way. Representing the soul's transition to heaven, the train is a passage from this life to the next. The boy meets many celestial beings on his journey, among them the newly departed, but only he will be allowed to return to Earth, where he dreams of being reunited with his father. Beloved as a classic in Japan for its original and artful evocation of a child's yearnings, this is a book of great wisdom, that teaches acceptance and compassion to young and old alike.
