Berta is a curious and funny girl who is fascinated by the power of words: how they are able to conjure things and create new worlds. She plays with them and creates poems, riddles and songs. But sometimes she also has doubts, for instance when she asks herself why, if words are potentially infinite, are there situations that Berta can’t resume in just one word? And will al the words that she uses find a place inside her? What she knows for sure is that she will always feel comfortable inside the five letters that compose her name. A clever and witty book to think about the power of words, defining what we see, stimulating new ideas and a way of living together with the people around us.
