By opening this book the reader has to be ready to start on a journeys through words: the reader will find calligrams , secret languages and other mysteries awaiting to be solved, songs, tongue-twisters, poems composed using one vowel and even one poem in gliglic, the language invented by the writer Cortázar! An extremely funny anthology of poems that contain riddles, encoded language, jokes, verbal experiments, all thought to have fun during an otherwise boring journey. The witty illustrations are the perfect complement of the texts.   The book contains 4 pages with die cuts, so that the reader can actively play with the images and poems. In fact, the reader will also have to decipher the code in order to be able to read some of the poems.   A book that will make you play with words, their shape, their meaning and sound, as if following on the steps of a detective and his hound trying to solve the mystery of the language. Time will fly by and travel by train (or any other means!) will never has been so fun and fast!
