The "Pequenos Autores, Grandes Histórias" ("Little Writers, Great
Stories" in free translation) project's main objective is to transform writing
into a fun and pleasurable activity for children.

Through several encounters and dynamics, children between 8 and 11 years old,
in a vulnerable social situation, write their own stories, and afterwords,
teenagers from particular schools get involved in the illustrations of those.

These very important social interactions result in a compilation book.
And the illustration shown here was the cover of the second edition of these books.

The entire layout was cut, pasted, needleworked and drawn by hand with pen, 
scissors, strings and papers, and digitalized afterwards for color correction
and composing the illustration.
