Stories Under the Tree

VARIOUS AUTHORS 
Illustrations by Peppo Bianchessi

A magical collection of 18 Christmas stories

Only at Christmas time, there’s something special in the air, that only happens at this time of year. Some call it magic: whether you believe it or not, in any case, it’s the secret ingredient of stories that are always new, and all that matters is that someone is still able to get us excited about a story.

  • “Whatever the truth may be, it doesn’t matter: in the world of stories, and stories for children, the only thing that matters is that a friend is telling them. Like mine have done, in the pages that follow.” - Pier Domenico Baccalario
