Benty Breight's Jig

Benty Breight has had an awful day and needs two glasses of Kentucky soda.

So begins the tale of his adventure, which is literally “one number after another”: 11 bandits stole 12 coins from him on Friday the 13th, and his horse sneezed 14 times…

  • A jolly western jig, full of fun and laughs.

  • An entertaining way to introduce young children to numbers.

Davide Panizza was born in Trento on a lucky Friday 17 of 1992. As a child he began to draw anything, so he decided to attend the course of Graphic Art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Urbino and the MiMaster Illustrazione in Milan where he experimented with his passion for children's literature. He lives and works in Trento dividing his days as an graphic designer for the theatre and as a freelance illustrator. He finally managed to reconcile his passion for illustrated books and western movies by writing and drawing The Ballad of Benty Breight (Lavieri edizioni 2018).
