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...
