"This book is a picture of the lack of time captured through the eyes of a child. It's a great illustration of what goes on in a child's mind when adults are bogged down in their work and trying to focus and get out of it."

What do parents say about the book?

"This book, I think, is not so much for the child as for the parents to understand where that time disappears. Nowadays, we are in a hurry everywhere, we do everything quickly or leave everything "for later". Adults are used to postponing everything: not now, but later, when I will do this and that. Children behave completely differently: if they want to eat - they want now, if they want to play - he plays now, he wants to go outside - that means he wants to now. I think we need to be children as often as possible and spend more time with children."
