  • The Happy Owls

    Celestino Piatti

    Hardcover (NorthSouth, May 1, 2013)
    This is a classic text about enjoying the miracle of every day life. Originally published in 1964, it is being reissued, a testament to Piatti's distinctive artwork. He is particularly known for his innovative use of fonts. Why are these owls so happy? That’s just what the chickens, ducks, and geese want to know. But when they send a peacock over to find out why, they’re incredulous at reply. How could anyone be happy simply to see the rain and sunshine? What could be so joyful about the flowers and butterflies? Celestino Piatti’s lovely story is a powerful testimony to seeing the beauty in our world and standing apart from the crowd. As Piatti once said, ""You can draw an owl a thousand times, and never find out its secret"".

    Christine Goppel

    Hardcover (North-South, Sept. 1, 2005)
    A tiny aphid named Anna lives on a big green leaf with her family. But Anna is different from the other aphids. She is curious to discover what lies beyond their green world. So Anna sets off to explore. In an entertaining visual guessing game, we see things from Anna's point of view. An ordinary bedroom is a vast, uncharted universe. A light bulb is a burning sun, a baby's head, the moon. The rug is a red planet's fuzzy forest. Dangers lurk everywhere. A burst balloon becomes an exploding planet, the vacuum cleaner a powerful black hold that sucks everything in its path. Having explored enough for one day, Anna heads back through the emptiness of the universe to her own green homeland. There, she reports on her findings: "I didn't meet any other forms of intelligent life," she tells her father. "But the universe is so big! Who knows what is out there waiting for us?"
