It's Book Time!

Fuel your mind poster by Shaun Tan

The Bologna Children's Book Fair started today, and tomorrow Seba and I 
are going for our annual pilgrimage, like every Spring for the past 14 years. 
The experience is always interesting, often exciting, generally exhausting. This time 
I am particularly looking forward to it, since we have some new important projects 
to promote and discuss. Say a little prayer for us and enjoy this reading rainbow!
