Product Description

Review

 “…This is a lovely book for all who have been touched by adoption in some way.”
The Waterloo Region Record
 
“…Thisdale’s illustrations are beautiful, a highly textured combination of painting, drawing, and digital imagery. The pictures draw us in, creating atmosphere and tone, and ultimately establishing an unexpected connection between the Chinese and Canadian landscapes….”
Montreal Review of Books

“François Thisdale is best known as an illustrator, and Nini is the first book he has written. Nothing has been lost in the translation from the original French version. The poetic story of adoption, love, and family complements the soft illustrations which tell half of the story and set the mood on each page. This is Thisdale's personal story, and the black smudging around the edges of each page give the impression that readers are experiencing each step of the journey through his eyes…”
–Highly Recommended, CM Magazine
