Respect for crazy freedom (or free craziness??) of imagination! :) The illustrations are awesome, as usual when Eidrigevičius makes them.

A rather quirky little book about a boy with a long nose and his different uses for it. Covers using at a pencil to providing a bridge for a little girl to cross a precipice.A bit dark, but interesting illustrations.
