Wonderful flea market

Written and illustrated by: Lizardo Carvajal

The author and illustrator Lizardo Carvajal once again enchants us with a necessary book in times of short-term memory. Wonderful flea market will connect grandparents and grandchildren, parents and children, on a creative journey through the life of the objects that we love and that one day we stop using. What is garbage for some is a treasure for others. This is a book to discover and be amazed with objects from other times; it is also a graphic story that tells different stories simultaneously and above all it is a book of poetry. In the marvelous flea market, the wise reader will find in his verses the string of a virtuous salesman who knows how to find value in what is broken and old.
