Thirteen Mexican artists share their vision on what a life without violence could be like in this beautiful picture book depicting a child’s hope and dreams. In the dream, pistols shoot butterflies; scarred drug lords sell only soap bubbles; wars are fought with flowers. The artists transition from dream to reality by empowering the children to “learn from city trees that fight back and break open the sidewalks” … and continue to grow and breathe despite everything.”
