Free Drawing

written & illustrated by Andrés Sandoval
On a rainy night or a foggy afternoon, who has never seen themselves with a handful of pencils and their imagination on the loose?  More than a coloring book, FREE DRAWING is an invitation to dive into the universe of colours and strokes, filling spaces and white with a lot of imagination. From the botanical garden to the world of shadows, the reader follows a boy’s wanderings  and is invited to join, whether with crayons, wax chalk, watercolor, or just as an observer – this creative journey.

The World Would be Cooler

written & illustrated by Marcelo Tolentina
The world would be cooler… if post-cards arrived every day; if octopus were newspaper delivery man; if there was a storm in the desert; if dogs meowed and cats barked; if we dried on the clothesline and if penguins did not wear social attire. Did you ever think about this?

written by Ana Maria Machado &  illustrated Christine Röhrig

In this extremely sensitive text, Ana Maria Machado patches together literary classics to tell the story of a woman who spent her whole life singing “the lady and the loom” while washing clothes in the river in the mornings, going to church in the afternoons, and telling her stories at night.
