By Marta Comín
Have you ever worn a messenger vest? Have your feet followed the path of a map of teeth? This and much more will happen to you if you delve into this book. A fun and surprising proposal that plays with expressions that we use every day, mixing them and generating surreal images. What if we put together "a treasure map" and "a toothbrush"? Well, we will have "a map of teeth" and "a treasure brush." Marta Comín plays at mixing and combining everyday expressions, giving life to images and surreal situations that she illustrates with wit and humor. This book will delight all readers, at home and at school. In line with the concept of "fantastic binomial" formulated by Gianni Rodari, the reading will give way to a unexpected story and character creation lab for girls and boys to bring their own stories to life. What will be the day-to-day life of a "lifeguard pigeon"? How do you train a "racing cheese"? With a pencil in one hand and a smile on his face, each reader will be able to ask curious questions and be surprised discovering all the details that the author has hidden in the illustrations, creating a parallel narrative that goes through the book from the first to the last page. On the last red page of the book: a diptych is pasted. Marta has drawn it as if it were an envelope (it is the envelope that the carrier pigeon carries in its beak earlier on in the book). The reader opens it and inside is a sentence: A LOVELY END.
