Los creadores del best seller número 1 del New York Times The Day You Begin se unen de nuevo para deslumbrar a los lectores con una historia que rinde homenaje al poder que hay en cada uno de nosotros para soñar algo y hacerlo realidad.
 


En un día triste y aburrido, un hermano y una hermana prestan atención al consejo de su abuela:
«Utilicen esas mentes hermosas y brillantes que tienen. Alcen los brazos, cierren los ojos, respiren profundo y crean en algo. En algún lugar, en algún momento, alguien estuvo tan aburrido como ustedes ahora».


Y antes de que se den cuenta, su imaginación los eleva y los saca del aburrimiento. Luego, en un día lleno de peleas, siguen el consejo de Abuela y descubren que son capaces de dejar atrás su ira. Esta preciosa habilidad, les dice su abuela, se remonta a días mucho antes de que nacieran, cuando sus antepasados mostraron al mundo la fuerza y la resistencia de sus hermosas y brillantes mentes.
