Augusto Monterroso wrote what is considered the shortest story ever: "When he woke up, the dinosaur was still there." This story is not about the Latin American writer, although the character is named MONTERROSSO. It is a kind of tribute to all those who enjoy stories, books, and tales. It is also a homage to the work "Where the Wild Things Are." Unlike Maurice Sendak's book, in which a boy locks himself in his room and enters a world full of monsters, here the journey is undertaken by the parents, searching for their son, who disappears into the pages of a book. Will they be able to find him? Can they bring him back home? This work has multiple interpretations, somewhat strange and mysterious, but with simple reading, like all great stories.
