“All that is on the Earth, and the Earth too, the Moon and every planet to the end of universe, is my magic.
In the morning, the sun rises to warm me up.
The cow makes my milk.
The baker bakes the bread for me”.
A highly poetic picture book about the feeling of omnipotence that is typical of every child: the certainty that the world exists depending on you, becomes the belief you own the magic to create everything – the sun, milk, clouds, your cat, the voice that answers you when you call someone.
