The book | Once upon a time there was a small raindrop different from the other ones. She wanted to escape from the rain and travel alone beyond the sea and the mountains. But soon she met another unique drop and together they explored the fascinating world around them.

A story for all ages that captures the journey of life through friendship, coexistence and love.

The author | Marivita Grammatikaki was born in Chania on the island of Crete.
