COSA C'È LÀ DENTRO? COSA C'È LÀ FUORI? WHAT'S IN THERE? WHAT'S OUT THERE? The Big Square Book by Bruno Tognolini with illustrations by Paolo d'Altan. What's in there? That is what is asked by some children who live in the great valley, looking at the high walls of the distant city. But they are not allowed to approach, because - as adults say - the city is full of murderers, monsters and dungeons. Or instead - the kids wonder - are there rides and games? What's out there? So ask the children who live in the city from which they are not allowed to go out, because out there are - as adults say - monsters and murderers, fire and ice. Or rather, think the kids, are there magical meadows, forests and fairy fruits ? Two stories that interlock with each other (you can start reading from the first or second one), full of adventures and friendship. rrose sélavy 2014 32 pages + cover, four-color printing, - Size: 23x27 cm Readers + 9 years
