A magical imagination that will cool down the summer’s heat.
- Book Intro
Noteworthy for its imaginativeness, freely moving between reality and fantasy, this work begins with a grandson visiting his lonely grandmother one summer day. After her grandson gives her a conch, which resonates with the sound of ocean waves, and departs, Granny is seated in an empty room, watching the television. Suddenly, she goes inside the conch with her puppy, Mary, and enjoys a nice summer vacation. In contrasting the home where Granny leads her everyday life and the seaside where she enjoys her vacation, the author shows an impressive expressiveness. Whereas the protagonist’s home is exquisitely depicted with bric-a-brac, the sea is shown as a space where a wide-open view and a bold composition unfold. While Granny is portrayed as reticent and quiet in her daily life, she is as lighthearted and humorous at the sea. Adding outstanding imagination and sensitive mise-en-scène, the author spins the magical adventures of the heroine into a fascinating story.
