Selected by Time Out for ‘Children’s Book of 2013: ages 5 and Up’.

Apart from a few exceptions, no one can say with absolute certainty where people go when they disappear. Do we go to the same place that lost socks go to? Or do we perhaps evaporate into the heavens in the same way that puddles do? Taking advantage of the lack of definitive answers, this beautifully illustrated book launches new hypotheses, from the serious to the nonsensical, by drawing on the world around us for ideas. Tackling a serious theme in a philosophical and poetic way, Where Do We Go When We Disappear? concludes that ‘Nothing is too empty a place to be in. And if we all go there, it will cease to be nothing in no time’.

Isabel Minhós Martins is a Portuguese author and publisher whose words are found in works of poetry, children’s books, magazines, comic books and scripts for animations.

Madalena Matoso is an award-winning illustrator from Lisbon, Portugal whose quirky and graphically striking imagery saw her win Portugal’s coveted National Prize of Illustration in 2008.
