When Emanuel and Bilali wake up in the morning, there is no breakfast waiting for them. The boys live on the streets. When they are hungry they have to look for something to eat. Otherwise their empty stomach strats to growl like a lion. Fortunately, the boys have a lot of experience how to get tasty tomatoes and sweet tea. Apart from that, Emmanuel and Bilali do the same things as other children: they play and laugh in the sun and imagine their future when they will be a busdriver or president.

A wonderfully illustrated picture book about street children – honest, poetic and full of light.
