I dispettosi


with Emma Lidia Squillari

I dispettosi is a flock of more than a hundred birds that spend their time on the trees of a park, constantly making up new ways to bother passersby. They are also the protagonists of Emma Lidia Squillani’s last illustrated book. During the workshop the author will do a reading of the story and teach the kids how to draw the characters with stencils.
