About this Event

The books:


"The book succeeds on multiple levels: as a relatable story of a child managing change, an emotive introduction to Gaudí's style, and, for architecture fans, a colorful history of Casa Batlló."

― Quill & Quire


"A timely story about an issue occurring in many areas of Canada: the loss of green space due to intensification and the drastic change it evokes. Kerbel's imagery throughout is compelling."

― Canadian Children's Book News
