Out of the bitter storm comes a gift that saves a village.

This story is a beautiful adaptation of the Italian folktale of how Burano began crafting its famous lace. Rich, intricate illustrations by noted illustrator Traci Van Wagoner complement the delicate tale. Readers young and old will appreciate the resourcefulness and devotion of Gianni and Nicoletta in this title, destined to be a classic.

This fun and beautiful book, which I illustrated and was written by Cladia Cangilla McAdam, is coming soon to bookstores! You can preorder now from the publisher Pelican Publishing, B&N, and Amazon.

Up for grabs is 1 F&G (folded and gathered), which is a special pre-publication edition of the book. Enter to win at Goodreads.

I hope you all enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed illustrating it.

Live, laugh, and learn.
