ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

If children’s stories were required reading for adults, would we be capable of learning that which we’ve been teaching for so long?

A beautiful tale for children?and adults?by José Saramago, Nobel Prize laureate in Literature.

The Biggest Flower in the World tells the story of a child who, while traveling the world, finds a withering flower. ?Oh! There is no water here. This flower will die.” So he starts to search for water around the world; he journeys far from home and crosses unknown landscapes looking for a way to save the flower.
A story loaded with strength and energy and a text full of symbols and mysteries. With illustrations by João Caetano that help maintain the tale’s power and poetry.
