Excerpt (scroll halfway down):
"I believe that my contributions to literature for young people are questions. These questions are related to the Picture Book as a media: Why not consider the tridimensional aspect of the book architecture? A book is not a flat object as a painting is. It is possible, for example, to take advantage of the folding of the page, the turning of the page, or of the angle of the open book to emphasize the composition of an illustration and give it movement. Why not offer complexity and non-linear readings in a children's book? The book as a media drives to linear and non-linear readings, due to its easy handling. Besides that, the simultaneous use of the two languages, text and image, can cause ruptures in the linearity of the reading. In addition to these researches, my concern is to testify more and more my time and my culture. But what is really my time and my culture?"
