The Grey Boy
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungJoshua has a problem--he is grey, inside and out! At wit's end, his parents try everything they can think of to make him normal--even resorting to some far-fetched remedies to eliminate this anatomical dilemma--but nothing works. Joshua is simply not impressed by anything or anywhere he goes. Fortunately help is at hand and closer to home than everyone thinks. From the Catalan region of Spain, this quirky tale, illustrated with rich, multi-layered artwork, is a journey into one family's experience and how they cope with a unique problem.
PortraitI was born in Barcelona quite a few years ago without the slightest idea of what I wanted to do when I grew up. And although I've been drawing pictures ever since I could hold a pencil in my hand, as for becoming a proper illustrator, the sort who has to draw one or two faces every single day (as I do now), it wasn't until I had a few hairs sprouting on my face that I thought of doing that. And I enjoyed it. A lot. And as for becoming a proper writer, the sort who write not just letters, emails and essays in English for school but stories, I didn't think of doing that until some of those hairs on my face had gone grey (not too many, though!). And I enjoyed this too. Enormously. But I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Because I don't think I'm really grown up yet, not like those people who behave like grown-ups all the time and when other people see them they think 'Isn't he grown up now!.' But it doesn't matter. Not so long as I enjoy doing what I do as much as I have until now!
