A grandfather, who is also storyteller and travels around the world is a powerful presence in the imagination of his grandchildren. It is through this character, loved by early generations and fundamental in the transmission of knowledge that the book reaches the young reader.
Three stories are selected by this traveling grandfather; each one of them originated in a different culture, but addressing common themes for the human experience. The first is Chinese and is about fear; the second, very popular among Buddhist monks in Japan, discusses chance, and the third, which was first narrated by a Persian poet of the twelfth century, marks the eternal pursuit of God.
The narrative is rich in images – both in texts and illustrations – that talk directly to the child’s mind and raise feelings that will live forever.
