A Very Late Story
Marianna Coppo

A blank page, five odd characters, a few words, and lots of humour. These are the ingredients of this brilliant story in which the only missing piece is… the story itself. When the characters appear on the blank page and realize they are inside of a book, all they can do is wait for the story to arrive. While they wait, the small impatient rabbit starts to draw. Little by little the drawing grows into a world filled with animals, colors, and surreal encounters.
Playing with the traditional rules of storytelling, this witty story within a story is also about imagination and the need to find resources within ourselves.

Great Dog
by Davide Calì, illustrations by Miguel Tanco

The age-old question of "what will I be when I grow up" gets a hilarious twist in this stylish and clever story.
A pup and his father contemplate his grand future while looking at other Great Dogs in their family. Will he be a marathon runner like Uncle Tibor, the fastest dog in the family? Will he be an astronaut like Aunt Yuki, who reached for the stars? Or maybe a teacher like Uncle Scooter, respected by all? 
No matter what, says his father, he will be a GREAT dog! 
Davide Calì's tongue-in-check writing and Miguel Tanco's unique and funny illustrations bring these great dogs to life and will have readers giggling from start to finish. With gatefolds that show the real story behind the characters and a surprise twist at the end, Great Dog is a winner for kids and parents alike!
