Eat the Sky, Drink the Ocean was delicious! It is filled with empowering short stories regarding feminism and the environment. There are also beautifully illustrated comics. What I love most about this book (besides the amazing cover design) is the focus on collaboration. Writers from opposite ends of the world were paired up to discuss global issues and then write a story together. This is one of those books that I want on my shelf at home, so I can re-read it over and over again.

These imaginative short stories use magical realism to illustrate the powerful and inspiring ways that girls and women deal with what life throws them.

Humanity. A small word in comparison to our grand vast world and its deep meaning. What does it mean to be human? Well, some fabulous authors teamed up to write stories and depict manga in ways so that we as readers could find new ways and light to see ourselves. My favourite is definitely the story of the girl who had to watch her two siblings and gets pulled into a transit terminal. The play of imagery really stuck with me from that one. The first one about catcalling is a good one too. This is a collection of stories that have been artfully woven for you to read, so that you too may see the world in its grand scheme and colours, vast and marvellous.
