At the beginning there’s just a child, a red ball and a house. Then the ball escapes on bus number seven. It’s off to find a mountain that it has seen only in a book. This picture book is magnificent; the illustrations are printed in bold colours, using silkscreen prints. The last page of this remarkable picture book lists all the shapes and colours used by the illustrator and gives details of the geometric calligraphy specially designed for this book. It won the Opera Prima Award at the Children's Book Fair in Bologna in 2012 and comes complete with a DVD of an animated version of the story.
