Illustration for the stanza of mouse

Poems that address different animals in the form of cordel literature (six-verse stanzas). They are fun verses, full of nonsense. The poet plays with the sound of the words, and reinvents the animal world.

Interior illustrations

Each animal received a stanza and each stanza a full-page illustration. The style of the illustrations refers to the woodcut art, characteristic of the Brazilian Cordel.
