The exceptional illustrations support the story through collage and gouache.
Anika's story takes us on a cultural journey. The Glossary explains to us some interesting details about life in Asia.

Synopsis: Imagine this book as a pair of glasses.
These glasses enable us to see the little tree that grows on the way to school, the loving look from the neighbour's dog, the bird that lands on our window sill every morning, the rays of sunlight that warm our body, and all those things that are right in front of us.
Imagine wearing those glasses every day.
What would you see? How would you feel?
Pick them up, and try them on!
See what you discover...
