«Along the road comes Ramón. Each Sunday he takes the same route. Early in the morning the orange shadow of his umbrella appears on the path. He likes to imagine that he is a ship with its sails unfurled, sailing towards the park.»

One morning, when it isn’t raining, Ramón goes out with his umbrella up. Everything he comes across on the way has a delicate magic about it: the people, the woods, the autumn and, eventually, the rain. A book in which narrative and illustrations combine to create a serene and profound poetry.
