Author: Emily Arnold McCully
Paris, France in the nineteenth century. One day, a sad and mysterious stranger came to stay in the small hotel of the widow Godai. He was taciturn and lonely; Mi Ai, the widow Godai's daughter, accidentally saw him practicing tightrope walking in the backyard. The smart and brave Mi Ai couldn't restrain the curiosity in his heart, and the yearning to walk in the air began to learn tightrope walking with strangers, and then discovered that this stranger was actually the once-famous tightrope walker-Bailey Ni. However, behind Bellini, there is a memory that makes him unbearable—the fear on the steel cable. So the story further unfolds in the mutual love and help between Amy and Bellini.
A lyrical story, not weird, not funny, not full of unexpected surprises. Emily McCully uses her skill and exquisite watercolor skills to lead readers across the rooftops of Paris, France in the nineteenth century with an elegant gesture, shuttles under the clear sky, and appreciates the colorful world belonging to acrobats, rivers and lakes artists, and comic troupes. , Among them, there is a witty and brave little girl. Excluding the visual enjoyment brought to readers in the pictures, the unpleasant breath of life in the story, the courage and mutual help, and interpretation between the little girl and the big actor will also allow readers to enjoy a good time of warmth while reading.
