  • A book for those who are tired of screaming.

  • This book describes, without any words, how an apparently insignificant disagreement can escalate. What the quarrellers say is depicted in red and purple cloud-like formations above their heads. The more people who get involved and the more heated the situation gets, the more threatening the growing number of blots and scribbles appears. Suddenly a large eye appears within the converging clouds, which metamorphose into a giant monster that casts darkness over the world. Only through a joint effort, using all their creativity, do the people succeed in escaping this oppressive setting and float away, literally, into a new and once again colourful world. The Brazilian illustrator Nani Brunini has found catchy visual metaphors for destructive discord. Although the story is easily understandable, it does not divulge all its secrets, leaving instead much room for interpretation. The considerable appeal of the images lies in the strong contrast between the delicately drawn figures and the vigour of the two colours, which seem to intermingle, but do not blend. (Age: 5+) [JW]
