Lily is fat. Very fat. She spreads across every page. And so do her thoughts. Bert is thin. Quiet as a mouse, he holds his breath and slips into every page. And into Lily’s life. A look, a smile, and there they go holding hands. As if by magic, their differences disappear. Bert expands, growing big and fat like his friend, and together, as light as clouds, they lift off. As light as a feather and as tender as a caress, this book doesn’t need words. A “mille millimetri” of images only: delicate and sensitive, dedicated to all children who would like to weigh less in order to please more. One thousand millimetres to remind them that feelings weigh far more than a few kilos too many.
