The World Belongs to You

The World Belongs To You
by Riccardo Bozzi
illustrations by Olimpia Zagnoli

The world belongs to you. And you belong to the world. You are free. Hopefully. You are free, but you have limits...
A deceptively simple picture book that takes on the big issue of freedom in a poetic and thought-provoking way: freedom to play, freedom to grow, freedom to think, freedom to be sad, freedom to love.
An inspiring picture book for people of all ages to read over and over again.

“A book for life's special turning points.”
School Library Journal

The World Belongs To You is a simple, but beautifully written book by Italian writer Riccardo Bozzi and illustrated by Olimpia Zagnoli. Each page of this book has no more than one sentence and one eye-popping digital illustration. However, don’t be fooled by the minimalism, it is a powerful and inspiring book.”
The Children’s Blog

"I found this gem browsing a store in my neighborhood. I read it. I cried. I read it to my husband that night. He cried. There was something so hopeful and true about this picture book I wanted to buy it for everyone I know."

“Un libricino per grandi e piccoli dove concetti universali come la libertà e la felicità sono tradotti in parole semplici e tratti essenziali.”
Marie Claire Italia

“Autentica e raffinata poesia. Poesia in grado di offrire occasioni di riflessione ai più piccoli ma anche, e forse soprattutto, ai più grandi.”

"Un GRAND album sur la liberté" 
Les mots de la fin

"Un album à part, percutant et qui donne envie de vivre et de grandir"
