A nearly-lady

Cristina was born in Naples. It was at the end of the eighties and life appeared to be hard with the thread of camorra, earthquakes and nuclear explosions happening. But Cristina is so lively and creative that she can handle everything, all she needs is reading her most beloved comics, drawing, learning self-defence from her brother, telling her troubles to Diego Armando Maradona, writing to and receiving letters from Barbie.

Nobody passes!

In this book you’ll find a general, an officer and many people eager to “go beyond”. But going beyond is not possible: it is forbidden to cross the frontier of the page. There’s no reason for that, the general has just ordered so. It’s an abuse of power. From this simple, common fact, a funny story starts and turns into a truly surprising ending. The authors of a successful book such as P di papà, are back with this book full of colours, of little stories that children are to follow along 40 cheerful pages to improve their civic awareness.

The missing mouse

The missing mouse (Il topo che non c’era) by Giovanna Zoboli and Lisa D’Andrea is a foretold successful picture book. Why? First, because nobody has ever seen such a great number of mice in a book. Of any kind. All the mice of the world, except for one. The one missing, indeed. And the one everybody was looking for. Second, because what happens when the missing mouse comes in, you never can guess. With this book, Lisa D’Andrea has her debut as a new, extraordinary talented illustrator.

Archì

This is the short colourful story of a mysterious guy: Archì. Archì is a small funny man who looks like some sketch comedy character. Cheerful and gloomy, he doesn’t know anything: he falls down, he’s astonished, he’s happy, he stands up again. But he knows about the wind, the birds, loneliness and resting. Archì is made of many colours, he looks like a worldview from the moon, but also like a bag from whose holes things fall off and he’s got nothing left inside. Yet, everywhere Archì passes by, anything around wakes up, comes to life, sings, plays, lifts up and rejoices.

The brat

Lorenza is an only child, with a disproportionate number of cousins. She is the older kid in the family and, arguably, the smaller. She spends the first years of her life in a constant coming and going between two cities of the Abruzzo region, the mistress of both family’s houses, composing rhymes on the poop during car trips, adopting hordes of stray cats (with premeditated disposal of the new born), tireless concoting pesky questions to pose to strangers. obsessively watching horror movies with her male cousins ), devouring crazy quantities of bread and olive oli.

The amazing shirker

He has no job but he is full of hobbies. He has a lot of things to do and much more time to waste. Who is he? A superhero? A public enemy? No, he is a kid. Flighty, rakish and disrespectful, Andrea spends his days in a very bright world where books, comics and tv stars are no less real than his relatives, school and friends; a world of spreading immagination and constant curious find; of impatience with imposed homeworks and of a total and serious commitment to his own unlikely deeds.

Kissing the five of us

Giulia, aka Periscope, is never silent, even if she is still not able to talk. She eats everything, including fertilizers. She loves the bear Birallo because it has an evil face.

The story, from zero to ten years, of Giulia: A girl in capital letters, a super girl, the great scourge of the female genre. As all little girls are.

The great book of cakes

Flies fallen in the fruit cocktail, naughty peanuts pulling a milkshake around, an apple custard who dreams of being a sailing ship. Ten sandwiches evading from the pic-nic basket. A rice pudding on a cruise ship and a Coca Cola who falls in love with a pizza. The magnificent vocabulary of kitchen and cooking sings the verses of the human comedy and its social rituals.
