BRAS, THE BRAZILIAN LITTLE PRINCE
Author: PAULA NOVAES
Illustrator: VANESSA ROSA
2014; 15,5x23cm; 96 pg; age 11+
Theatre Book: Bras, a boy from a Rio de Janeiro’s favelas (slums), works to help Grandma and cannot study, nor play. Bras found a book all torn apart and let his imagination fly away. Inspired by the book “the little Prince”, but with elements of brazilian culture and modern themes, such as child labor, electronic junk, excessive individualism and instant celebrities. Elaborated with rich and expressive illustrations by Vanessa Rosa, this book is undoubtedly a ticket for all who seek the world of imagination to better understand the reality that surround us.
