Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble… Words are sounds and each sound can be a poem.
Once upon a time there was a child who believed to have superpowers.
If he pronounced a very small word, small like NO or like I WANT he would become so strong that he would feel the greatest man in the world.
But one day he discovered that the superpower of words can also make you feel very bad and he learned what the power of words really is!

By including these words in our dictionary pages, lexicographers have made us believe that onomatopoeias are ordinary words. Whoever listen to them attentively discovers the truth instantly: onomatopoeias are real poems.
The author, with her exciting use of the language and her impressive imagination, invites us to discover the poetry that lies in the heart of onomatopoeias. The explosive illustrations by Roger Ycaza accompany her on the trip.
The poetry-child relationship is natural, it draws on elements that are common to them: play, amazement, affectivity. A book of immersion in the magic of words, that is why it is a deeply childish book.

A book for pre-readers that addresses the issue of small fghts and conﬂicts between friends. The dog protests, the cat cries and the chick answers; everyone wants to be heard, which in this case are the onomatopoeia, each animal’s sound. This short but very appealing graphic story invites to interact with small readers, it teaches us about the importance of an assertive dialogue. The technique used in the illustrations is the collage.
