A broken alarm clock, a deck of cards, a hen, a mask, three rolls of masking tape, five keys, eight buttons... You can find everything in Madam Misery’s cart. But no matter how much you rummage and poke, you won’t find so much as a crumb of tenderness, of love. As forceful and direct as the extraordinary illustrations that accompany it, this timeless parable about solidarity and compassion is for whoever refuses to limit themselves to one-dollar text messages, and for whoever persists in thinking that a rose sandwich makes a perfect snack.
