Surprising, original, and gorgeous, The River is a book about the seasons and the different kinds of experiences and stories that each season brings. Consisting almost entirely of images, The River presents each of the four seasons as its own chapter and story. A few sentences at the start of each chapter set the stage and provide clues for following each story. Beginning in autumn and ending in summer, The River is about our connection to place, as well as about the connections between geography, setting, and the stories we tell. The River is also about the flow of time, which flows like the river, and carries us.

Alessandro Sanna and his work are renowned throughout Italy and this book, which will fascinate young and old alike, demonstrates why.

Born in 1975, Alessandro Sanna's work is well-known throughout Italy. He has earned wide recognition across Europe as an illustrator and author, and his work has appeared in the New York Times Book Review and the New Yorker. He is a prolific and popular creator of illustrated books for children and readers of all ages and has received many awards and had many exhibitions. He lives and works in Mantua, Italy.

Review:


"Along the lines of Blexbolex's Seasons (2010), an immersive visual experience that richly rewards patient attention." STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews


"Italian illustrator Alessandro Sanna exposes the remarkable sensitivity that gossamer connection between between the physicality of the land and our transcendent experience of the passage of time, the inner seasonality of being human. Through his soft watercolors shines the immutable light of existence. ...Glowing with quiet optimism, Sanna's vibrant, expressive illustrations whisper to us that, despite its occasional cruelties, life is mostly joyful, radiant, and, above all, ever-flowing."―Brain Pickings

"Along the lines of Blexbolex's Seasons (2010), an immersive visual experience that richly rewards patient attention." ― STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews
