Publisher's summary
Siblings Pia and Pablo love playing with their puppet theatre and all its characters. One day Ricky moves in next door. All of a sudden, Pablo stops playing with Pia and the puppets and begins to spend a lot of time with Ricky and his collection of toy cars and planes. Pia is left to play on her own. Until Ricky falls ill… and so the play runs its course.

A story that expresses children’s feelings in an incredibly sensitive way.
