It’s OK to Cry
The urge to cry sometimes comes and it’s okay. For example, if you’re the kid reading the book right now, you might cry because you just lost your favorite toy, or because you misbehaved and now you feel down, or because you think no one in the world understands you. I’m sure you have even cried at times just because you felt like it… Be as it may, it’s important, dear reader, that you know that you’re not the only one who cries: moms cry, dads cry, brothers and sisters cry, kings cry, but also thieves and cops and even skeletons cry. And although scientists argue that only humans can cry, the monkeys, the cats, the dogs and the birds surely cry, but also the comets, the flowers and the robots and, sometimes, also the houses. And I’ll cry too (I’m the author and I’m talking to you), if I understand that you didn’t like this book!
More and more pop art: a brilliant Spider and his crazy paintings on wood, in a book full of color and laughter, despite the many, many tears that flow in it!
Daniele Melani, known as Spider, surprises with his eclectic and original style, influenced by pop art, graffiti, manga and cartoons, calligraphy, underground comics, and popular icons like Betty Boop, Popeye and evil wolves. He has collaborated with Italian and American magazines and newspapers, and published many of his picture books with Orecchio acerbo.
