Synopsis: A boy searches fields, forests, and mountain for the song he hears each night in his dream, unaware that the true source is in his own home

From School Library Journal: Grade 1-4-- In a European folktale-like setting, Pavel leaves his home for a day's journey to find the song he hears only in his dreams and can only recall in fragments. His trip takes him up the river that whispers wistfully a part of the melody. The child continues to search, and hears from the shepherd's flute another piece of the song. Finally, he locates a little cottage next to a small spring. There, an old man strums a verse about the passing of such music from one generation to the next. At home that night, Pavel falls asleep, too tired to hear his mother's lullaby, the same one he has heard on so many nights, and searched for that day. Readers young and old will ask, "What is this about?" Parental love that accompanies a child's metaphorical journey through life? The importance of memory? An allegory for the passing of gifts from one generation to another? A happy summertime idyll? Vasiliev's off-balanced figures in yellow and green backgrounds, as if remembered from long ago, reflect the dreamy nature of this ambiguous story. His exquisite paintings depict animals, insects, flowers, and fruit in detail but the humans seem remote. Most children are likely to be impatient to be off on their own adventures rather than to mull over those of Pavel. --Susan Hepler, Alexandria City Public Schools, VA
