A simple and at the same time profound poem wrapped in bold illustrations that tells us that we are not what we appear to the naked eye. An invitation into a journey beyond appearance to discover who we really are. My nose is tiny and gets lost in my face, but it can smell cookies two blocks away.

What do children think about their own body? The protagonist of this book believes that he is very different from his own body. For instance his body washes in water whilst he bathes in laughter. At night his body sleeps whilst he escapes into dreams. But the protagonist prefers his own body after all because he lends him his eyes. A powerful book!
