Interesting illustrations with only hints of color (red fox) until the final 2 pages. Suggestive text alludes to a missing character (mother) and hope that father and child will make it okay.

This is not so much a story, as it is an experience, and a look at a young boys emotions. The flow is difficult to follow at first, but when you think about it, you start to get the anxiety, and the eventual comfort the boy feels. The 3D art effectively matches these feelings by visually representing the atmosphere.
