“Al otro lado” | Cristina Falcón Maldonado & Mariona Cabassa | Akiara, Spain | 40pp | 28 x 24 cm
Juan José today can’t do anything because the cable of the zip-line cable has broken, the zip-line he used to jump on every day to go to school, across the river, since the bridge was carried away by a flood. Juan José closes his eyes but remains awake, because he wants to dream. He is keen on daydreaming, so that the dreams can be chosen by him rather than by fear or by the night. Inspired by a true story from Venezuela, this book is an invitation to think about wealth and poverty, mockery and self-improvement, daydreaming and celebration.
