written by Otávio Júnior and illustrated by Vanina Starkoff

A poetic book that presents life in a favela in Rio de Janeiro from a child’s positive perspective. The colourful collage illustrations depict features, gestures, objects, animals, people and lives as the narrator sees them from the window. An invitation to observe, absorb and think. Otávio Júnior opened the first libraries in the favelas of Complexo da Penha and Complexo do Alemao- where he was born.
