Give me a break

Haja Paciência

Gonçalo Viana

Orfeu Negro | april 2023 | 40 pages | 23,8 x 31 cm | hardcover

Wouldn’t you know it! I've been unlucky enough to live in a book! Me of all people, when I just wanted a bit of peace and quiet.

I’ve been Pinocchio, Cinderella, Captain Hook and Snow White, always jumping from story to story… If I could only live in a quiet book, with a lot of pages: a Dictionary, there’s a thought! That way I wouldn’t have unexpected visitors on Saturdays like yourselves. Honestly, give me a break!
