for the book I Want To Win!
“Our beavers are the Earth’s eternal ‘heroes’. Vainglorious but also capable of the bravest self-abnegation. Able to understand that “finally, everything is a matter of luck and the gods may stop favoring you any time they like – it takes no more than a minute to turn from lucky to unlucky. The most important thing is who you are, what of you is left once good luck abandons you.” But that is exactly what good children’s literature can do. In its sparse and frugal language, it can condense meanings and concepts that belong to the sphere of philosophy. Aris found that out for good when his good luck ran out. So, let us be our selves. Another day we will win, differently.”
