Illustrated by: Simona Mulazzani

Giusi Quarenghi’s playful text and Simona Mulazzani’s wonderful illustrations invite us into a surreal world where yawns can turn into clouds, where trains swim into the sea and teach dolphins how to whistle.

Una volta, un giorno – (Once, One Day) is a dreamy and poetic narrative that can only be grasped from a child’s point of view.
