PRESENTATION OF HO SENTITO DIRE CHE… (I HAVE HEARD THAT..., TERRE DI MEZZO EDITORE)
with Mariapaola Pesce & Martina Tonello
The mole hasn't been seen around for some time now... what happened to it? Did it run away because it made the farmer angry? Did it go to New York to run the marathon?
Or, has it become a celebrity and is about to make a movie? The animals of the woods and farm exchange ever more sensational hypotheses about the fate of their friend!
But… where will it really end up? With the entertaining mechanism of the wireless telephone, the lively pen of Mariapaola Pesce and tables teeming with Martina Tonello’s details, a thousand different stories are evoked, to be enjoyed aloud together and leafing through them again and again with the little ones!
Genoese by birth, bookseller through family heritage, then trainer and executive coach, today Mariapaola Pesce is now occupied with writing and education. Since 2018 she has released publications through ElectaKids, Il Castoro, Eli Publishing, Beccogiallo, Orecchio Acerbo, and Pelledoca Editore.
