Mentre tu dormi

Mentre tu dormi

’While you sleep’ is a colorful silent book, engaging, rich in detail: each page is a journey…

A wordless book dedicated to reading, especially that made by parents to children before they fall asleep, because in the night, in dreams, the stories and their characters come alive and the world of fantasy becomes reality!

Form a series of books without words, to tell stories through the magic of images. Great authors who participated in the prestigious Silnet Book Contest award, the first international competition dedicated to the book without words.
