"The chosen project is a rather original narrative, in which an idealistic narrator exposes his disappointment with story endings. While this narrator celebrates the endless possibilities within stories, a very pragmatic backstage team works in parallel to put an end to this story itself."
"We'd also like to highlight the dynamics and tension around the end of the book, when two opposing sides argue over the nature of the "end", making room for surprises and shifts on every page. The illustration work is equally solid, revealing the quality and skill of the illustrator."
