Creative workshop / Meeting with Tàssies
A boy who experiences life as an outsider at school finally finds a friend. But his happiness is short-lived. Soon they take away his friend and with her his joy of life. What begins as a list of good things leads to a story about the deprived circumstances of a boy who is even robbed of his name. With colorful illustrations and sophisticated compositions, the picture book is an unsparing examination of the consequences of bullying.
The event takes place as part of the special »Spotlight Spain« on the occasion of Spain’s guest country appearance at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2022.
