This is the story of a curious and playful girl who, once she starts talking, cannot stop asking questions, making up answers to everything, making rhymes, humming and producing beats with everything she finds. The book is interspersed with a variety of games from traditional Brazilian culture. These include street games, circle games and word games that are passed on from generation to generation. The story tries to recreate the entire world of imagination of the Brincante Institute, which gives value to traditional Brazilian culture and its celebrations, such as the São João feast and Carnival.
