We have written this book with the hopes of creating a sort of Borges for children, in which the reader follows a bat, a cat, an owl and a fox who try and make sense of this simple system. The book also encourages to try and understand the rules, and plan unsuggested avenues.
The book is available in 13 languages: English, Lietal, French, Japanese, Russian, German, Italian, Dutch, Greek, Arabic, Chinese, Spanish and Portuguese.
Project done in 2016 as part of Screensaver jam
