Pepe's Guidebook to Earth
Pepe is about to arrive on Earth. He knows nothing about the planet he is soon to land on. Brand new here, he might need some help to navigate; how to use his arms, how to talk to Mr. Fear, where to look for joy?
“Pepe’s Guidebook to Earth” is my first children's book. And yet perhaps it is not a kids' book.
It is addressed to kids and adults, especially expecting parents. It is written from the perspective of a mother anxiously waiting for her first child Pepe to be born. She prepares an illustrated guidebook for him to make his stay on Earth easier.
Subsequent parts of the guidebook take the newborn traveller through the most carefree and darkest places of the road ahead. Pepe will get advice on losing, listening to his guts, and looking at the world upside down.
While the guidebook offers help where possible, it also admits its limitations, encouraging Pepe to solve matters of heart and challenges on his own terms.
Twenty six chapters are titled according to successive letters of the alphabet.
Polish pre-edition of the book is now available here.
