Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Monsieur Bibot, el dentista, recibe con enfado dos higos como pago de una mujer pobre que le dice que esas frutas pueden hacer sus suenos realidad. Esa noche, antes de dormir, Bibot se come uno de los higos, que resulta delicioso. A la manana siguiente, saca a pasear a Marcel, su perro, que no vive muy a gusto en la impecable y ordenada casa de Bibot. Misteriosamente, descubre que el higo hizo realidad su sueno, y se propone guardar el segundo, sin saber lo que le depara el destino. Una superba historia, con multiples lecturas y una delicada ironia que versa sobre el verdadero valor de los suenos y los deseos.

Synopsis:

"These figs are very special", the woman whispered. "They can make your dreams come true". Thus Monsieur Bibot, the cold-hearted dentist, was given two ordinary-looking figs as payment for extracting a tooth from an old woman's mouth. Monsieur Bibot refused to believe such nonsense and proceeded to eat one of the figs for a bedtime snack. Although it was possibly the finest, sweetest fig he had ever tasted, it wasn't until the next morning that Monsieur Bibot realized it indeed had the power to make his dreams come true.
