The girl who painted leaves

The girl who painted leaves

The illustrations of Paolo Proietti create a silent story. But turning the book upside down you’ll find the beautiful tale of Erica Arosio.

From the window of a warm and cozy room, a little girl looks at the fallen leaves, yellow and brown. She is afraid of winter, of cold, of sadness… But, as soon as the rain stops, she goes out to paint green new leaves – because she is a fairy, the fairy of spring…

A very magical story painted by the hand of one of the most famous italian illustrators.
