Product Description

“Babaï’s garden” is a deceptive book in its apparent simplicity of resources. At first sight it seems that we are faced with a story built on a model known type of oral tradition tales, accompanied by beautiful illustrations. In the first encounter with the book perhaps our attention is attracted by the presence of two languages, reading paths in opposite directions, the illustration technique and little more. However, it’s these constructive elements and others that, if analysed more closely, will show us a deliberately ambiguous book, open and propitiator of intense activity and inexhaustible production of meaning by the reader.
