Our Featured Book for June – Piano Piano


So it’s June already! A bit late with this news, but our featured book for June is Davide Cali‘s Piano Piano.

Piano Piano by Davide Cali and Eric Heliot

  • Special Mention – Bologna Children’s Book Fair Ragazzi Awards
  • Outstanding International Book – USBBY

This funny and entertaining picture book is about finding your passion, and young Marcolino is pretty sure learning piano is not his passion.

‘When I was your age, I played for hours,’ Mum insists, but Grandfather remembers things rather differently. He helps Marcolino find the musical instrument that’s right for him – and it’s a real surprise!

Marcolino's favourite TV show.

Created by two of Europe’s most acclaimed creators of books for children, Davide Cali and Eric Heliot (France’s leading children’s illustrator).

‘Cali is nothing if not diverse in his choice of subjects to explore. He treats them with keen perception and creativity. Allied with gifted illustrators, his books are always memorable. Highly recommended.’ Magpies

This book comes with a comprehensive set of Teachers’ Notes, which can be downloaded here.
