Descripción

A very old woman and a very old man wanted to have a baby, but they didn’t know how to go about it. After many attempts, experimenting different ways, including seeking the collaboration of the king and the Queen and the storks, they came to a conclusion: making a baby is very complicated. One day the old woman had an idea… With a keen sense of humour and wealth of detail, this free style version of a traditional Mongolian tale plays with the question “Where do children come from?” and approaching at the same time the question of age and procreation, something which is very little dealt with in children’s literature. Immersed in a culture where it appears that from certain ages nothing good can be expected, this story is full for other readings supported by the images. Baby Whiskers reserves a beautiful ending that sheds a light on the possibility of reconsidering relations, living intensely and coming to terms with the fact of being old as a privilege and claiming the right to love and pleasure at whatever age. Beyond the physiological changes, the word, the feelings and the desire can remain intact along the years. A tale to be enjoyed at whatever age.
