Lia is the name of a princess who had a strange illness. She could not smile, talk or even eat until the day she met a witch. Through inspiring poetry, the witch helps Lia dream of different worlds and prompts her in the desire to experience new discoveries. A page-turner where the joy of new surprises helps Lia to overcame her sorrow. Colorful pages give the tone to poetic texts, indicating the possibility of looking at the world and its beauty. The poetry mixes reality and fantasy, and colors blend, creating a new palette, giving meaning and poetry to life. The illustrations, made from techniques of the theater of shadows, resemble images of the popular culture of the Northeastern part of Brazil.
