Snippet: “Prémio Bissaya Barreto” for children’s poetry


The fourth Prémio Bissaya Barreto for children’s literature went to Pequeno Livro das Coisas [Little book of things] written by João Pedro Mésseder [pseudonym of José António Gomes] and illustrated by Rachel Caiano, published by Caminho in 2012. According to the jury “[t]he poet offers a work that challenges the young reader / listener to contemplate the world and to formulate questions that strengthen the links between children and adults.” Some of the illustrations can be seen at the source and at the illustrator’s blog.
