A picture book that sparkles with deep interpersonal connections.
The orange horse has been in the big city for a very long time. He is desperate to find his long-lost brother, but the only clue he has is a half-torn photo. "Anyone with orange skin, fast speed, or black hair might be my brother,"he says. An orange house, a very fast car, and a lion with black hair thus come to meet him, but none of them is the brother he is longing for. Finally, he meets a brown horse, with whom he becomes best friends. Surprisingly, the brown horse also has a half-torn photo of his missing brother. However, their photos fail to fit with each other. The orange horse feels very depressed, and so does the brown horse. Out of anger, the brown horse takes out his scissors to cut the photo in half. However, after calming down, he collages the two photos into a complete one. With a smile, he says to the orange horse, "Now, we are brothers." The Orange Horse is a tender work that, through the author's lovely and childlike illustrations, conveys the importance of interpersonal care, trust, and mutual understanding.
