“Guapa” | Harold Jimenez Canizales | Apila Ediciones, Spain | 36pp | 25 x 25 cm
Witch has a date with Oger and she’s all excited! But on the way to the romatic picnic he’s invited her to, she comes across various animals who tell her she’d be much prettier if she got rid of her hunchback, pointed nose and straw hair. So she does but how will Oger react at the sight of his unrecognisable sweetheart? A story, full of humor, about the overwhelming pressure on looks in today’s society and how easy it can be to loose oneself in the process.
