The Letter

Text & Illustrations by Natasha Yugai

Our world has a place for good and evil, positive and negative. All judgments are quite subjective and everyone has a right to their own opinion. But what to do with this fact: what is good for one can be evil for another?

One little girl and her friend dinosaur find out that the lightning hasn’t appeared in the sky when it should have had. The sun doesn’t rise in the morning nor the street lamps burn... And there is no ice cream left in the shops! The city is black and lifeless. It turns out that everyone has received an anonymous letter saying that they are spoiling the sender’s life! The lighting is too frightening, the sun is too bright, and ice cream causes an allergic reaction. If someone doesn’t like you, is it a reason to disappear? But what can be done? The two friends will unify the world by writing their own letter: “We love you, world” ― with all its good and bad. And then the sun will rise.
