written Jorge Luján & illustrated by Isol
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!
