The book | A small, tender story that reads like a fairy tale, about the creation of the world. When the Darkness touched its heart and its Great Secret became boiling hot and rushed out of it. When Life began its journey through Time. The pictorial "story within a story" gently and effortlessly leads the child to creative thinking and experiential knowledge. Through the inventive illustration, the little reader becomes part the book and enjoys being a traveler in the universe and witnessing the evolution of the world.
Books that talk about the creation of the world are usually books of knowledge, books of science or books of religion and theology. This is a book of empathy, it stimulates our psyche to seek knowledge. A unique «road movie», a storyline where the mystery of life plays the leading role.
