The Red Tree (緋紅樹) is a picture book I saw Sophie mentioned in her blog.  
I'm quite interested in this charming picture book.
But the price of English version is too expensive for me.
Maybe I'll buy one (Chinese-English version) published in Taiwan.
That would be cheaper than the original version. XDD

The words in the book are filled with positive energy.
Illustrations are very beautiful as well.
Both words and pictures inspire and enlighten me a lot.
I'm lovin' it.

The following introduction comes from the Books.com:

《緋紅樹》是一部高水準、獨樹一格的繪本創作,處處洋溢著令人驚豔的美感。作者精緻的圖畫,展現出獨到的藝術手法。從複雜的拼貼畫,到潑墨般的技法,都能掌控裕如,並且呈現出一種嚴謹的創作態度。這些內蘊豐富的圖畫所傳達的視覺訊息十分強烈,讀者每翻開新的一頁,就能當下理會其中的含意。文字簡單而直接,富於詩情,這些字句提供了讀者解讀畫面的途徑,為之增色不少。

---------- 美國學校圖書館月刊書評

  作者陳志勇(Shaun Tan)的繪本作品極富創意。《緋紅樹》的每一頁都是令人難忘的藝術作品,它們結合了華麗的想像、多重的藝術美感,以及顯著的個人特色。除此之外,它的意涵是多層次的,那些感人的圖畫,成功地詮釋了一個孤寂的心靈。這本書不僅描寫「晦暗時光」,也蘊含著希望和自我提昇。
