'When I was born I had never seen the sun or a flower or a face...'
One of our favourite books is written and illustrated by Madalena Matoso. It is a poetic tale of discovery, new life and the awakening for the very first time of the five senses. Perfect to read out loud, to give as a new baby present or to give to anyone who has an interest in and appreciate of contemporary illustration.
Madalena Matoso won Portugal's coveted National Prize of Illustration in 2008.
