Blackout

停电以后

Regular price $15.95


One hot summer night in the city, all the power goes out. The TV shuts off and a boy wails, "Mommm!" His sister can no longer use the phone, Mom can't work on her computer, and Dad can't finish cooking dinner. What's a family to do? When they go up to the roof to escape the heat, they find the lights--in stars that can be seen for a change--and so many neighbors it's like a block party in the sky! On the street below, people are having just as much fun--talking, rollerblading, and eating ice cream before it melts. The boy and his family enjoy being not so busy for once. They even have time to play a board game together. When the electricity is restored, everything can go back to normal . . . but not everyone likes normal. The boy switches off the lights, and out comes the board game again. Using a combination of panels and full bleed illustrations that move from color to black-and-white and back to color, John Rocco shows that if we are willing to put our cares aside for a while, there is party potential in a summer blackout.

《停电以后》:

嗨!还记得小时候家里经常停电的日子吗?停电以后,家里的大人似乎不用再忙他们手头的事情了,一家人无所事事围坐在一起,玩玩游戏,唱唱歌,或是和平时不怎么往来的邻里一起聊聊家常,真是一种别样的愉悦!手电筒、蜡烛、煤油灯都用起来,看着家人的身影在墙上温柔地晃动,神情似乎也比平时温和亲近了许多!
那么,我们一定要等到停电了才这样吗?
《停电以后》是一个特别的故事,由“停电”这样一个小小的意外,打破了一个寻常之家寻常夜晚的平静。在跟随故事中的小女孩,感受这个小小意外带来的欢乐的同时,不禁令读者深思,我们有多久没有“放下自己”、“放下”手头忙的要紧事,来专心陪陪孩子,来和家人单纯地聊聊天了?
故事中描述的是纽约的一个四口之家,同时也是你、我及一切现代都市中繁忙的家庭。
本书的作者约翰?罗科曾和家人一起居住在纽约布鲁克林区,在那里他们经历了令人难忘的夏季停电。本书正是依照当年的生活经验创借由这本书,让我们共同感受亲情的力量,惜取亲情的可贵,一起去追忆自己儿时的家和久违的温暖感觉吧!
