The world's horizon is an apparent limit to the vastness of our planet, but for a little girl with boundless imagination and a comprehensive point of view, it's more than just a frontier; it's an invitation to an infinite exploration. Told poetically through her eyes, Beyond the Horizon is a beautiful tale that invites us to grasp the invisible--both what's outside and within ourselves. The book explores different fields of vision, using each colorful viewpoint as a story of its own, venturing throughout the globe, from above and below, reminding us that how we see challenges and opportunities is just a matter of perspective.
