Gek Tessaro e Lella Marazzini
In a meadow apparently
it seems that there is almost nothing.
The flowers the stems, the leaves here and there.
But are we sure that’s it?
If in the grass you look for
many little ones you can meet
they run, they jump, they are naughty
here are the little besties.
From the homonymous books published by Panini come to life stories of insects and other small inhabitants of the meadow. The narration is cheerful and playful, tender at times, simple enough to be suitable for an audience of even the smallest.
GEK TESSARO is an author and illustrator of children’s books. Equipped with great communication skills, he leads image education laboratory activities, animated readings and meetings throughout Italy. Animated by a provocative spirit and a subtle ironic vein, his work is supported by a great passion for the graphic sign. From his interest in “spoken drawing, the drawing that tells” was born “the drawn theater”. Taking advantage of the unthinkable qualities of the overhead projector, with a highly original technique, he gives life to narratives drawn from his texts.
