The Rock

written by Jorge Luján & illustrated by Chiara Carrer

On the outCover frontskirts of the village there’s a rock. The rock has a question for those who approach it – the ones who answer correctly can continue their journey and the ones who don’t must turn back. “Before I was a rock, what was I…?” asks the rock. “An archipelago!” says Lucia. “The tail of a snail!” says John who can also pass. But each time Pedro answers: “You’ve never been anything but a rock!” he has to turn around. Only the power of imagination and creative thinking can move this very special rock.
