    Hardcover Description:

    The World Belonged To Us is a celebration of playing – the collaborative, imaginative, joyful playing of my childhood in Brooklyn. I wrote these books for myself at first because I needed to remember all the places in our lives where happiness prevails. I’m beyond excited to share that joy with young people and anyone else who needs it.”

    Leo Espinosa remarks, “I first felt connected to the story of The World Belonged To Us because I am a child of the 70’s and it brought up vivid memories of the priceless moments I shared with my friends in the street, always running, pedaling, laughing; just us, making up our own rules. Though my childhood happened in another country, many miles away from Brooklyn, the feeling was exactly the same.”
