The hand is so much part of our bodies that we barely notice its presence. We use it to carry a mug of tea to our mouth, stroke a beloved pet, and bang on the table, when we are angry and when we are not. Composed of wrist, palm and five clever fingers, the hand is a reliable partner we would struggle to be without.

Have you ever wondered how the hand works? Or why some of us are left-handed and others right-handed? Or how the hand of a sculptor differs from that of a pianist or a bricklayer? Did you know that we can use our hands to talk with, by communicating thoughts where words can’t reach? We may think of the hand as ordinary, but it is truly remarkable… We guarantee that once you have read this book, you will think of your hands in a whole new way.

The book has been included in the BRAW AMAZING BOOKSHELF 2022 – a selection of one hundred outstanding picture books that participated in the BolognaRagazzi Award.
Hand – A Complete Guidebook has been also nominated for the MAGNESIA LITERA 2022, the most prestigious Czech book award.
