Description

‘All this will soon be yours, respect what I have built and make it prosper.’

These are the last words of the old industrialist before dying. While the three brothers discuss how to fulfil their father’s wishes, the sister lists for them the disastrous consequences that would follow: disease; marine pollution; deforestation; the destruction of the landscape; pollution of skies and rivers…

The Inheritance tells of the greed of those who hold economic power, and reminds us that silence and inaction amount to complicity. With minimal text, this powerful story is told primarily through Armin Greder’s distinctive illustrations that challenge the reader to question the status quo and fight for the future.

Powerful storytelling from the internationally acclaimed, award-winning creator of The Island and The Mediterranean and Diamonds.
