Everyone disappears behind The Wall and it’s up to us to protect them!
When a little girl moves house, she finds it hard to understand where things go. After all, if she can’t see them are they still there? After settling in, she meets a friendly old man until one day he too disappears. Soon she meets other children; all of them wondering what happens to things when they disappear.
We all know someone or something that has just disappeared. A tree, a toy, even a person. The adults try to explain the best they can. They try to look after us. But we know what’s really going on. This is the story of The Wall.
Written and illustrated by Mauro Lirussi, The Wall is a dark and curious children’s story that will spark the imagination. It’s angular, almost surrealist art style complements it’s inquisitiveness perfectly; giving The Wall a dreamlike quality. It really is a children’s book like no other.
