Fuori freddo

Fuori freddo

Cold outside. White outside. Red cheeks. Hot inside. High fever, Mummy says.

From the pen of the great children’s author Luigi Ballerini, a story dedicated to children, born from a personal memory of a child.

Outside it’s snowing, and everything is cold and white. Inside it’s hot , and a child can’t go out because he has a high fever . Mum is there for him, though, with a beautiful surprise. Stunning illustration and essential text create a soothing whole, with a lyrical back-and-forth between opposites – fever and snow, heat and cold, inside and outside – leading up to a final embrace.

From the expert voice of Luigi Ballerini with the poetic and rarefied illustrations of Paolo Domeniconi.
