The Little Stone Lion, escrito e ilustrado por Kim Xiong (Heryin Books), uma parábola sobre a memória e a impermanência. Não consegui que me vendessem o livro em Bolonha, mas a Amazon dá uma ajuda. Aqui fica a sinopse:

“This book is aimed at children aged 5 to 7 years. In a small Chinese village, a stone-carved lion sits and watches as a guardian spirit and holder of the villagers' collective memory. Older people stop, stroking his head to remember the past and children walk by knowing he watches over them to keep them safe. Whimsical illustrations and inventive visual perspectives depict the lion's expressions as he recounts his memories of the villagers over the years in daylight and evening and in the changing of the seasons.”
