Elisa's eleven brothers were once princes, they used to go to school with a star on their chest and a sword by their side. They wrote with diamond pencils on gold boards. Their sister Elisa sat on a little glass stool, reading a picture book which had costed as much as half their kingdom. Oh, these children were indeed happy, but they were not doomed to remain so... A child rescues her eleven brothers from a spell cast by an evil queen: a classic topic of fairy tales. What makes “The Wild Swans” so peculiar is the magic writing of Hans Christian Andersen and the delicate, although strong and powerful illustrations by Joanna Concejo. [Text in Italian]
