Jump, Bart!Author: Susanna Tamaro
An exciting and entertaining novel that is an exhortation for children and a warning for adults.
Bart is an intelligent 10-year-old who lives in a not too distant future where life is marked by technology and each stage of the day is controlled and governed by machines. Bart is always by himself since his parents are far away, on business. He sees them only through a monitor, and his only comfort is his teddy bear Kapok. Bart’s monotonous days are filled with commitments, courses, until the day he meets a hen named Zoe and his life is radically changed.
Bart and Zoe are a formidable pair. Zoe shows Bart that life is an adventure, filled with beauty, friendship and fun in nature. Together, this ingenuous child and his feathered friend romp through a fantastic real world and poke fun at technology and a world obsessed with wealth.
