Qinuq is a small alien who has just landed on the earth. He discovers and compares joyfully the resources, the wealth and the contradictions of our world. everything is new and very different from his silent, dark planet where there is no water or heat and where the inhabitants laugh but don’t speak. But it is thanks to this separation – leaving his own land to discover a different reality- that Qinuq realizes the importance of his home, of his roots. Without forgetting where he comes from, Qinuq learns a new language that allows him to integrate and learn the rules of this new world.

Who can change the day in an instant, spray snow or spread a rainbow? Who can enter into a bottle or fight with the sun? Who causes havoc but can never be caught? this is the ballad of the wind, the song of the most elusive, intangible natural element. cheeky, mysterious, nostalgic, accomplice, unstoppable, the wind crosses the seasons and confuses lives, steals hats, puts out fires, pushes clouds and swings. a delicate picture book in which the poetry embraces the subtle and dynamic illustrations by Jesùs cisneros.

A Different Destiny

Themes: identity, growth, research From 6 years

The mermaid seems to say that we are all in cages with the doors open and we only have to find the courage to go out and face whatever is waiting for us. Staring at the acrobats from her aquarium in the circus and dreaming of freedom, the mermaid manages to escape and finds her way to the sea. At first it seems dark, populated by enormous, threatening creatures then, finally, immense, free, able to hold anybody who wants space to express themselves. A picture book that illustrates change with poetic delicacy and shows how to slide through the waves of our own identity without being hurt.

A dream that becomes reality: the story of a sheep and a wolf who get together to build a flying machine. The sheep wants to see things close-up, at a distance or in the middle; the wolf sets aside his doubts and throws himself into the project. Everything is possible but the techniques have to be improved, you have to be determined and sometimes ready to defend yourself with some extravagant disguise. Only then can you finally take-off and look ahead without fear: the sky is the only limit, but do not say it too loud or the sheep could have strange ideas‌

a red object comes out of the sea and lets itself be carried along. It is red in a rough, bluish world but it seems to be in its element. It doesn’t lose itself in the waves, in the night, near a gigantic whale, among the seagulls and fish. It floats passively and reaches the land. It puts down roots and grows. then, one day, perhaps sooner or perhaps later, a red object reaches the shore and goes out to sea. a story about the cycle of life, about trials and resistance, like faith or like destiny.

Looking for love is a little like flying. Sometimes you dive in head first, other times you hover around uselessly; often you are dazzled, following mirages and losing your direction. But just when you feel like giving up love arrives, like the caress of a feather, the song of a bird, the beating of the wing of a life. the important thing is to have looked carefully in the mirror and to have made enough space.

She feeds on the perfume and looks at herself in the whiteness of the petals. every morning a new flower blooms until in the end the plant dies. The woman is very upset and tries to explain this betrayal through her own gestures. a wise yet cruel crow rebukes her and tells her not to rejoice in what she can obtain but in what she has. the seasons pass and the following summer a new flower appears, not in the woman’s garden but in that of her neighbour. Pollen fills the air and the soul of the woman, reconciling her again to the intangible fugacity of the gift. a beautifully illustrated picture book of suspended atmospheres, a story about the nature of love and it’s magic.

An old teacher, an avid reader, waits for a child to find the courage to bring her glasses up the dark staircase of her house. As she encourages the child not to be afraid she remembers her own feelings of terror and threat that she felt as a child. In a protected childhood of fog and pale moon, of white clothes and festive Sundays, the Black Man appears, part crow and part old man. He appears in mirrors, in the shade, on the pavement of the village, evoked by a terrifying rhyme which is revealed as a solitary peasant who pedals slowly on his bicycle wearing a black cloak.

A child

Themes: childhood, differences, identity From 6 years

Who is a child? And to be one do you have to know how to do something well, to feel things in a certain way, own certain objects, behave in the same way as others? A is “a child” and he isn’t particularly good at anything, but he is unique and precious: sensitive, funny, inquisitive, melancholy, creative. A child among other children: more gifted, sometimes presumptuous, rude, collectors, show-offs, all competing to show their talents, virtues and skills at all costs. A deep meditation on childhood, without false idealisms, presented in a soft, metaphorical light, that evokes the moments in the lives of children when they reveal themselves often as conformists and sometimes wonderfully rebellious.

From 6 years

Men do not know that apart from shining, stars can speak, whisper and sing. on a clear night above the observatory in Padua, the stars in the Swan constellation tell the story of galileo’s life. From his birth in Pisa through his false adolescent vocations to his astronomical triumphs. the stars tell an unusual and poetic biography of the man and the scientist, of the nobleman weighed down by economic difficulties and of the great inventor, of the heartless father and the affectionate friend. galileo is the astronomer who first observed the surface of the moon through a telescope. He contributed to the “scientific” method, he affirmed “And yet it is moving….” And offended the Church. In the same way as “the tree of life” by Peter Sis, “the voice of the stars” includes original documents and combines a careful iconographic research with a lyrical tone which reminds us how we are fragile, fleeting creatures in the Universe.

this is a big, decorative, cardboard, fold-up book. It lives in a child’s bedroom and changes with the day and the night. It’s a curtain, a theatre of stories and inventions. In the sunlight it shows the never-ending, black and white story of a family. In the dark of the night the book comes to life with the antics of many animals: a pair of mice, a cat, a rabbit, an owl and a group of bats. the illustrations of the light and of the night mix with the shapes, stimulating playful ways of thinking: the wheels with eyes and the headlights, the wings of the bats and the shape of the children...

How can we deal with the difference which sometimes separate us from others? Suffer it, hide it or transform it into a gift? The protagonist of this story will decide, or better feel, what he has to do. He can’t go back or hide amongst the others and this, at least in the beginning, will cause him great suffering. Later, however, he will understand why that difference was given especially to him and what he can do with it. After all, not everyone has wings, have they?

Sometimes people die inside and a great cold paralyzes them. they lose their vision of things, they retreat from other people and begin to have strange visions. The woman in this story receives a difficult recipe to get better. She must learn to accept that she has wishes. Yet to her it seems unthinkable even to wish. Sometimes salvation comes from accepting the impossible or an inner life that was almost forgotten. the touching story of a woman who accepts a re-birth and a different vision of the world from another creature.
