Create Your Own Divine Comedy

GIUSEPPE D'ANNA

Flames, monsters and demons await you in the most adventurous journey ever... so who's ready to set off?

Did anyone ever tell you to go to hell? Well, it’s happened to us all… But some people go to hell of their own accord – like Dante Alighieri!

That’s right: in his Divine Comedy, the Great Poet decided to take a tour of the underworld and now, thanks to this extraordinary book, YOU can do the same.
Let the good Virgil guide you, and venture among the flames and demons, discovering on every page how Dante’s Inferno works, with its circles, monsters, punishments…

But it’s not just for reading, no siree: to follow in Dante’s footsteps you’ll have to write, draw, cut out, glue, fold… You can even send anyone you want to hell, placing them in whatever circle you choose. And you just have to follow the clear instructions in the book.

In the end you’ll have YOUR OWN personal, unique and inimitable Divine Comedy!

  • A fun way to discover Dante’s Inferno, with its circles, monsters and the many characters inhabiting it.

  • A journey to be taken with Virgil by your side, armed with pen, paints, scissors, glue and ready to get your hands dirty. Because as you explore hell, you’ll have to do a lot more than read – you’ll find page after page of different activities.

  • This is the perfect book to help children approach the timeless work of literature that is The Divine Comedy. Through the amusing illustrations and narrator’s voice, Dante’s Inferno is transformed into an exciting adventure for young readers.

GIUSEPPE D'ANNA

Giuseppe D’Anna was born and grew up in the brilliant Sicilian sunshine, and trained in graphic design and creative writing in the Tuscan hills. Right now, he lives here and there (and somewhere else), and in the meantime he is having fun writing books for children and teenagers. As he loves to repeat (without being asked), writing and illustrating aren’t so very different: whether through pictures or words, it’s still storytelling.
