With texts that work as telescopes, Jairo Buitrago invites us to look closely at thirteen characters from the city: a boy who inherited his brothers' clothes, a man who once spoke about "Moby Dick" with a girl he never saw again, a lady who took her duck to the movies ... These snapshots weave a sweet story that invites the reader to exercise observation and empathy and lead to a lovely surprise. Ages 7-9
Jairo Buitrago is a writer, illustrator, and researcher of cinematographic subjects. He has won the White Raven Prize in Munich, Germany.
