Little Pierrot Vol 2: Amongst the Stars, by Alberto Varanda, is a creative story about a young boy, filled with his vast imagination and his practical snail friend. It reads like a comic strip, with each page providing a funny piece. The story is illustrated within Pierrot’s fantasy world. This book is an example of why I love reading. With the innocence and sensibilities of a creative child, coupled with outstanding and highly detailed illustrations that capture the beauty and detail of Pierrot’s world, Varanda moves us into an incredible experience coupled with humor and grace. There is no harsh message here, but many gentle reminders of what life can be, if only you let it. That’s the key—you have to let it. For adults, I think it’s especially important for us to read this book over and over again. Never mind the children, who are also certain to love it. Let’s talk about us. This story brings such a strong sense of the beauty of imagination, where simple things of life can bring such meaning, such purpose. To not take for granted simple pleasures such as losing ourselves by admiring the moon and stars, and imagining. Imagining what could be out there, imagining that the universe is a friendly place, that life is grand and wonderful. To stop and enjoy our lives’ journey each and every day, no matter the hardships or blessings. Little Pierrot Vol 2: Amongst the Stars, by Alberto Varanda, helps us attach meaning to life in a day and age where conflict often forces away beauty. Where the rushed pace of life destroys any sense of calm and peace so desperately needed. I highly recommend this book for anyone who can read and imagine what life can be. If you let it.

Little Pierrot Vol. 2: Amongst the Stars Alberto Varanda Little Pierrot is an imaginative child who has a friend that is a snail. He imagines many fantastical things like sitting on the curve of the crescent moon, and attempting to control his world. But he finds that his imagination does not seem to understand his own limits. The story is sweet, the pictures poinginant and the little boy innocent. The story is told in the fashion of a child, disjointed and rambling, but shows the ideas of childhood, friendship, and impossible dreams.
