Textul de pe ultima copertă

All I want to do on a rainy day like today is play my game, but my mom says it’s a waste of time. The game makes my mom crazy. Angry.
She takes it away.
I take it back.
I wish Dad had come with us on this rainy, gray weekend.
Without my game, nothing is fun.
On the other hand, maybe I’m wrong about that. . . . 


★ “Will resonate with young people just making their own discoveries and finding them precious. An effective argument for unplugged exploration, submitted through startlingly beautiful words and pictures.”
★ “Here true magic is found in the simple but transformative act of experiencing nature.”
★ “Alemagna demonstrates an uncanny knack for rendering emotional experience with line and color in this intimate and distinctive story. The spreads ignite with the warm glow of discovery.”
“Hands down, Beatrice Alemagna is my favorite contemporary illustrator. Pure magic.”
“Naive and childlike yet so very sophisticated. Lovely.”
“Heartbreakingly beautiful. You get the sense that she becomes totally lost in it while drawing and as a viewer you want to do the same. I think this might be Beatrice’s most breathtaking work yet.
“The name Beatrice means ‘she who brings happiness.’ Her work is not necessarily happy all the time-and I am grateful for that-but it is always is strong and delicate, lyrical and honest, all at the same time.”
“Seeing A Lion in Paris made me realize how beautiful picture books can be.”
“Something remarkable waits in every corner of Beatrice Alemagna’s world. Her work makes me feel like a child again.”
