"If I ever want to become a writer, I will have to be, first of all, a great reader ..."


“Francisco didn't even want to believe what his eyes saw. In the vegetable garden at the bottom of the yard, pieces of leaves with printed words and even some spines of books had begun to come out of the soft earth. What would be happening in your backyard, where everything seemed to live in the greatest peace and harmony, with no space or time for inexplicable events? ”

"O Canteiro dos Livros" tells the relationship of complicity and mystery, which becomes a well-kept secret between a boy and a flower bed in which, in addition to flowers, books are born.
