I love almost all of Marjane Satrapi's works e.g. Persepolis, Embroideries and Chicken with Plums. I was very much surprised when I found this children book in Gramedia. If usually we only see Marjane with her black and white illustration, now we have the opportunity to enjoy her fabulous colorful illustration. Look at the illustrations above, they're awesome, aren't they?

This is a special children book. The message is actually to love our earth. But as a very creative author and illustrator, Marjane can convey her story in an out-of-box style. Her imagination is amazing. I guess not only children even adult might enjoy this book a lot.

Thank you for PT Gramedia Pustaka Utama that already translated this book on June 2010, unfortunately I just found it on February 2011. Really hope that they will translate all Marjane's works.

@Ferina: Iya, illustrasinya menarik bgt, pas utk anak laki maupun perempuan, ceritanya jg 'beda' bgt, tdk spt cerita anak biasa.
