«Tengo un tanque de juguete» | Pere Martí i Bertran & Núria Tomàs Mayolas| Akiara, Spain | 9+ | 40 pages| 28 x 24 cm
I have a toy tank and tin soldiers, and every time I played, I killed a couple of them. Until one day I saw on TV soldiers crushed by tanks. Everything was full of blood! From then on, I started to have nightmares and decided to give a new life to my little toy soldiers, turning them into farmers. The tank became a wheelbarrow, and the battlefield is now a farm in nature. I can sleep well again! A beautifully illustrated poem, that makes us reflect on the banalization of war in today’s world.
