Shhh! Pablo is asleep. This is his last night inside the shell. Tomorrow he’ll come out. But he’s a little shy so will start with just very small hole. Tap tap!

With the little chick Pablo, we discover up and down, forward and back, shapes, the noises and smells of the outside, and take a first flight. It’s not scary at all! Especially not if you keep a little piece of home with you, in case you need it later. A fresh and funny story about stepping out on your own into a bright new world.
