the lost thing

Sale price€15,00

One day, a boy, while walking along the beach by the sea, looking for bottle caps for his collection, sees the thing for the first time. It seems to be lost and tries to find out who it belongs to, but the situation is received with indifference by others - strangers, friends and family. No one is willing to help and everyone refuses to pay attention to this unexpected interruption to their routines. Despite the sympathy that the thing awakens in him, the boy regrets the misfortune of the creature and does his best to find the place where it belongs.
A Coisa Perdida is, therefore, a kaleidoscopic and social reading, anchored in a futuristic world, which reflects the apathy and superficiality of a gray society, magnificently conceived and illustrated by Shaun Tan.
