Everything is Someone
Published by Vetro Editions , February 2020
'Everything is someone' is a series of short stories for future kids from 10 to 99 to understand the upcoming world where more things are becoming like people and viceversa. It was written together with Joshua Noble and illustrated by Ailadi.

There is the story of a man that wanted to become a table, a vacuum cleaner that owned a cleaning company, the first mountain that became a president and more.
