A postcard-size picture book about the relationship between a child and a mother, a dialogue where the same situation – first day at school, summer holidays, a journey – is seen from the point of view of both of them. It is a celebration of this inner connection, of the deep love that feeds blood and bones. A book that mums and sons can share and read together, helping to express what sometimes it is not easy to put in words.
