The Catalan Pep Bruno is a writer, who has already written several books for OQO, like Pétala, The silly nanny goat or Count with me. In this publication he dares to open the doors of mystery. He leads the reader into a story full of excitement and narrative suspense in order to tell the occurrences of this disturbing – but yet funny – journey, that is lived by the little protagonist during a day that first seemed predictable: eating cake and blowing out the candles.
Matteo Gubellini is a multi-prizewinning Italian artist, who has already worked for some of the most prestigious publisher´s houses of children´s books in Italy or France. In My grandmother´s house he demonstrates his creativity, showing his plastic, figurative, formal, chromatic talent...
