A story about the introduction to the world of reading and writing, through the inspiring effect that a phenomenal grandmother has on a child.
Many grandmas are dreamers, write poems, even wear green feathered hats ... but few dare to participate in poetry contests and plant a love of literature in their grandchildren, and consequently fulfill themselves through them, helping them grow and weaving a strand of continuity through both their lives by way of writing. Petunia is Vicente's grandmother, and she is not actually that crazy; on the contrary, her eccentricities are explained by her genuine interests. In this way, it's not difficult to identify our own grandmothers with the one depicted in this book.
