Illustrated by Gian Berto Vanni
This charming little book will delight - and touch - all readers.
A sweet, heartbreaking story is played out on shaped pages of vibrant colours, with cut-outs, strip-ins and peep holes.
A little girl's parents went away when she was nine. And as she has no relatives to care for her she is taken in by an orphanage.
Lonely and a bit unusual she stares at people with her big eyes.
She can do things that aren't very nice - and, often, people aren't very nice to her.
But all the little girl wants is someone to love...
