This story that recounts a slow journey across Istria, strictly on foot, pushes the reader to start walking because “by walking less and less, human beings have lost their grace as they continuously bend over their mobile phones…”. This is a book that seeks to instil in children the joy of exploring unknown paths and accepting margins of risk, while also discovering the richness of nature, silence and chance encounters with other people.
