    Closed for Holidays

    Sunscreen packed, suitcases ready, and off we go! But what happens when we close our front door behind us? It’s time for lots of characters to stretch their legs – all those who are forced to spend the whole year stock still. Not dusty puppets but ancestors who can’t wait to escape from their old photo albums and gilded frames. For them, our home is like a funfair and they swirl around in their vintage clothes, among our little potted jungles, organising regattas in our bathtub and enjoying fantastic picnics around the fires on our cookers. Chiuso per ferie is a little book without words to take on holiday and immerse ourselves in incredible adventures. As the author suggests, if parents have a hard time understanding, it’s best to let the children explain what’s going on in these pages.

    Figureheads

    The sea, voyages, stories, myths, discoveries. And symbols. Like the polene – the figureheads that constitute the “eyes of the sea” – in the title of the new book by Claudio Magris, published by La nave di Teseo. These images of women on the prows of ships protect sailors from the fear of shipwreck. As always in Magris’s books, the journey becomes a story and the story takes us to other pages of literature, from Günter Grass to Nathaniel Hawthorne, to Karen Blixen and Juan Octavio Prenz, and from the ports of Antwerp and Buenos Aires to memories of the Battle of Lepanto. The figureheads plunge into the waves during storms and rise back up, the wounds in their wood showing the ravages of time and the elements, yet still today we see them in museums as evidence of a timeless and constantly new passion of man: to dream and to sail. And, of course, to tell stories.

    A Book about Whales

    In world literature, they often appear in stories that describe them as gigantic symbols of the power of nature, in contrast to the fragility of humans. In actual fact, the number of whale species in the oceans is really huge and finding out about the secrets of each one is a pleasure that not only children will appreciate in this book. Andrea Antinori’s black-and-white illustrations highlight the scientific aspects, from the evolution of these gigantic animals through to their various types of blow, showing how to distinguish between a right whale and a sperm whale or a humpback whale. This book initially came from a university research by the author, whose works are now issued by publishing houses right across Europe.

    The Forbidden Harbour

    Accompanied by the verses of Lord Byron, Edgar Lee Masters, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Antonia Pozzi, we set sail on a romantic adventure, illustrated by the delicate drawings of Stefano Turconi and narrated as a nineteenth-century novel by Teresa Radice. The protagonist of this graphic novel is Abel, a mysterious boy who remembers nothing about his past except his first name. He is found off the coast of Siam by a Royal Navy ship and, once on board, he becomes friends with the first officer, who is standing in for the captain, who has run off after stealing the treasures that were on board. When he arrives in England, the young castaway finds lodgings in an inn run by the three daughters of the runaway captain, and he stays with them for a while, waiting to recover his memory. We are caught up in the deeds of sailors and pirates in this illustrated novel, with a wealth of literary references to the classics of literature and poetry. The soft pencil strokes create a surreal, immersive atmosphere, which plunges us into a story of love and of a mystery swallowed up by the sea.
