Many of us have suffered when our aunt, granny, neighbour or even the butcher pulling on our chubby cheeks. This is a story about a girl who is irritated about this “cheeks-pull” and decides to revenge. A story about redemption. A story about how to recover our honour. But above all, a naughty and hilarious picture book.
Do not expect to find a didactic sense in this book. “I’m fed up!!” is a story that stands on kids’ side through humour and transgression. It is a naughty and funny book. It is a breath of fresh air for children who live surrounded by books that tell them they have to be good. This picture book is a challenge to adult world, because adults sometimes don’t do things in a good way and we have to told them.
Because, tell me. Would not you have liked to have this book in your hands when you were a kid? Would not you have liked to take your revenge?
What do critics say about the book?
“[…] The artist and storyteller Raquel Bonita has created an irreverent story that reflects a delicate moment through it’s possible every child has ever passed. Using a luminous technique based on highlighter inks and crayon drawing, the illustrator achieves the ideal environment and setting to capture her original proposal that redeems all the generations that have lived in the first person the fact that serves as leit motiv of the book.”
