Siempre cuesta aceptar la diversidad, y sobre todo cuando se considera más un defecto que un signo de identidad, como le ocurre a la mamá de la niña protagonista de este libro, que se caracteriza por su obesidad.
Sin embargo, tal rasgo le confiere unas características que, unidos al amor materno-filial, hacen que la pequeña proclame a los cuatro vientos, sin pudor y a modo de lección para el prójimo, que su mamá es la persona más maravillosa del
mundo. Un canto al amor y a la aceptación, deliciosamente ilustrado y escrito.
Esta obra trata como temas centrales: la aceptación, el respeto y la obesidad.
The girl protagonist of this story realises how her mummy is rejected by society because she is fat. But her physical appearance doesn´t stop her feeling great affection for her mother. Thus, she transforms all the criticisms she hears into something good and positive in her eyes.
Without the slightest importance to her appearance, she imagines that her mother is a princess. For her, she is something special, for she is the one who loves her, protects her and cuddles her; she is also the person who makes her feel special.
As with the mother of the girl in this story, difference is always difficult to accept and even more so when it is a stereotype that is considered more as a defect than a sign of identity. However, the obesity that characterises her gives her her particular identity which, together with maternal-filial love, turns her into a great mother for her daughter.
And, as a lesson for the hypocrisy of those around her, the small girl doesn´t hesitate to unashamedly tell everyone that her mummy is the most wonderful person in the world.
A song for love and acceptance of the individual, delicately illustrated and written....
