“La playa de los inútiles“ | Alex Nogués (illustrated by Bea Enríquez) | Akiara, Spain | 9+ | 88pp
« My name is Sofia ». I am 11 years old and when I grow up, I want to be useless« . So starts the innocent, impromptu, profound and moving story of a little girl who loved to play on the beach in winter, who prefered Mozart and Kandinski to mathematics and who couldn’t bear her father telling her that, one day, she will have to « earn a living ». A praise of uselessness in a technological, cold and hasty society.
