Assembleia da República | DECEMBER 2023 | 44 PAGES | 20,5 x 24,5 CM | Hardcover

What are ghosts, bananas, and ostriches doing in the same story? Especially in one about laws? From the time we are children, we get used to following rules. We share a big house and we have to do our bit. But how well do we know the rules of the game? What role do laws play in our lives? Between the ghosts scattered across the pages, the banana trails and the ostriches rushing about, there is a common thread. Although invisible, laws exist.
