Earth is desolate and abandoned. Everyone has gone to the moon — except Vasco, with only his shadow for company. Vasco's shadow safely guides him through a surreal, apocalyptic landscape, where dangers threaten him every step of the way. But where is he going ? It's only when Vasco meets little Poco that his treacherous, uncertain journey takes on a purpose : to get Poco to safety. In his final work, master storyteller and illustrator Tomi Ungerer plunges us into an unyielding world of pollution and decay. Yet even amidst this dystopia, there is a benevolent guiding force and a young life to be loved and cared for. Nonstop is — ultimately and upliftingly — a heartfelt expression of the belief in our power to find a way out of any darkness.
