“Where does the world come from?
Has there always been something here?
Or has it all come from nothing?”
A picture book with fundamental philosopical questions, posed in a way only Jostein Gaarder is capabel of. Illustrator Akin Düzakin has made an independent picture narrative that underscores the existential aspect of Jostein Gaarder’s philosophical questions.
We see a young boy on a Journey. Alone in an open landscape. A journey in thoughts and dreams. About losing something and about grief, but also about understanding the mysterious and magical element of living as a human being.
