Mum is many things. She’s a round and walking house, she’s safe, she feeds me, tells me things or knits stories.


It’s an illustrated book full of colours (warm colours mingle with cold ones); it’s written in verse and includes naive illustrations. It highlights moms (human beings and animals) and their protective role in our world, as their detailed illustrations also reveal. The volume received the 6th International Compostela Prize for Picture Books in 2013.
