- Written by Ahmadreza Ahmadi
- Illustrated by Nahid Kazemi
When the blossom disappears, a little boy wonders, will it ever return? And when the rains stop, have they gone forever? This is a story about understanding the world and learning to trust. How do we find that grain of hope that good things might return?
