Some people are strong, extremely strong. I’m sure you know some of them, but do you know what makes them so strong? The funny narrator who tells this story will take you to meet the people who live on his block. Each one of them somehow possesses an enormous strength. You will meet Petro Pancho who saves his friend from the bully Bruto Brutótez, or Bertoluchi Venancio who donates his blood, and Venancia Herbidia who gets home late from work and still has enough strength to read a story to her child before they go to sleep. And what about lady Braulia who ran for weeks and months only to meet her sister again? The list of strong people is long and probably never-ending, so that the reader himself will be invited to think about his or her own strength. The colourful and fantastic illustrations of this book have a scent of the avant-gardist of the Twenties. In the images all the characters of the book come to life, meet each other and get slowly acquainted, thus creating the web that is the base of our daily life.
