描述:A little girl never stops looking at her phone, not noticing a series of events around her, involving dolphins, a bear, pirates, aliens, circus clowns, a rollercoaster. One day, she accidentally breaks the gadget… And for the first times she sees all the people and characters that like her and need her attention.

Book cover

She never pays any attention/ And she doesn’t hear when she’s mentioned/ She doesn’t see stray dogs in a growing queue/ Walking behind her with nothing to do

If a nosy elephant gives her a shower/ She doesn’t feel wet/ If a giraffe puts a long neck under her/ She keeps to her mindset

Walking by the shore without batting an eye/ She doesn’t notice the boats floating by/ And jumps high/ Over the smiling dolphins/ That sing songs together nearby

If a gang of pirates, scruffy and mean/ Invades the beach, while making a scene/ Drinking together whole bottles of rum/ The little girl doesn’t feel scared or annoyed/ She keeps walking by, with eyes fixed, wide and void/ Forever not eating, as if her mind is numb

If she finds a bear, all furry and friendly/ Wanting to give her a hug/ She wants to avoid him like a scared bug

Even with snow or big storms outside/ Or even bedridden/ With toys by her side/ The girl doesn’t look up/ From what’s in her hands/ As if it’s the only thing she understands

If late in the night a very bright light/ Lifts her up smoothly out of her bed/ And inside a spaceship she meets a green alien/ She doesn’t blink once or even stops looking/ At what she seems to think is more alluring

She ends up alone in a far away place/ Left in a crater/ In the cold, deep dark space

You just have to look around/ With a clearer view/ And talk to who’s nearer and friendly and true/ The girl realizes after quite a while/ That the world has more people/ Who want to meet you
