A stunningly beautiful and poetic illustrated book for children that poses the biggest of all questions: Why am I here? The voices, including the cat’s, the baker’s, the pilot’s, and the soldier’s, offer us some answers. But nothing is certain, except that as we grow, each one of us will pose the question differently and be privy to different answers. The illustrations of Wolf Erlbruch are inspiring.
