When it’s time to brush teeth, the kitchen becomes the stage of a tremendous duel between mother and son. A duel fought using enchantments. None, not even the house cat, will escape the magic that surrounds the place. Each enchantment has its own meaning, just like when the mother turns the boy into a pig, or the boy turns his mother into a mumbling coffee pot, or into a cage… The words that appear in this beautiful book are the spells created by the mother and son. Meanwhile, the reader will have to follow the story looking carefully at the images in order to see what the father and the cat are doing, and above all what all the child’s toys are up to. An imaginative, funny and clever book that has won the International Picture Book Competition, held by the Public Library in the Canary Islands.
