One of artist Marc Chagall's most enduring paintings is the basis for this beautifully crafted children's book.
This is the story of the postman Zephyr, who lives in a little blue village in the mountains where nothing ever changes. A dreamer hoping for adventures, he travels on a cloud, embarking on a fantastic airborne journey that takes him to distant and colorful lands. Eventually Zephyr falls to earth and meets a beautiful young woman. Together, they return to the postman's home which has now been transformed in Zephyr's eyes and begin their exciting new life together.
Inspired by Chagall's masterpiece, a world of color and imagination awaits the readers of this book. Paintings based on Chagall's striking palette and elegant lines help tell a simple yet poetic story. The book also includes a gorgeous reproduction of his work "Les Mariés de la Tour Eiffel" (The Bride and Groom of the Eiffel Tower), a beautiful introduction of young readers to one of the most popular artists of the twentieth century.
