Vorrei avere





I've got Vorrei avere (maybe something like "I wish I had"?), a new book from Topipittori, in my hands. Written by Giovanna Zoboli and illustrated by Simona Mulazzani. As all their books it is beautiful. An extra plus for the sketches in the end of the book.

Paolo from Topipittori says - "If anyone is going to Bologna, for the Children's BookFair, the original illustrations will be on exhibition in Vignola, at Libreria Castello di Carta, half an hour by train from Bologna station, with the bonus of a marvellous Renaissance castle, the most famous elliptical stairway in the world, and all the sweetness of Torta Barozzi" - I can testify that the torta is very tasty :-)

'Vorrei Avere' means 'I would like to have' A beautiful book though by the looks of it.

What a beautiful book, I'll have to try and get my hands on a copy!

@ Teresa:
it shouldn't be difficult for you to get your hands on a copy. The book is for sale in France (Editions Sarbacane), Germany (Peter Hammer Verlag), Spain (Los cuatro azules), Mexico (Tecolote) and Korea (Moon Won).
Topipittori will have the web store open soon (end of march, hopefully)

If anyone is going to Bologna, for the Children's BookFair, the original illustrations will be on exhibition in Vignola, at Libreria Castello di Carta (http://www.castellodicarta.it/), half an hour by train from Bologna station, with the bonus of a marvellous Renaissance castle, the most famous elliptical stairway in the world, and all the sweetness of Torta Barozzi
