HIGHLIGHTS FROM OUR SPRING 2020 RIGHTS CATALOGUE!

YELLOW PARROTS, BLUE PARROTS

Picture Books, 3+

Yellow parrots think they are better than the blue ones. And the blue ones are sure to be better than the yellow ones. One day, Bluetta – as blue as the night sky – shortly after leaving the egg falls from a tree. Ciuffodoro – as yellow as the sun – helps her, gives her all cares, especially friendship and love. They will discover that despite some differences, similarities are many more.
Bluetta and Ciuffodoro will combine their resources, their feathers, their hearts and eventually their chicks, wonderfully green, will show everyone that war is the most stupid thing in the world. This book is a hymn to the value of diversity and peace, against all wars.

I PLANTED A DREAM

Picture Books, 5+

A dream is not just a dream, just something abstract. A dream is something you can touch. If you plant it and build a small fence around it then you can be sure it will keep safe. Then the sun and the rain will take care of it.
And if, by chance, one evening, your dream should get afraid? Then you can sing a beautiful song, you can hold it tight reassuring it with smiles and cuddles. A beautiful story of persistance and love that explains how dreams, if well protected and cultivated, can sprout and unfold their wings.
